In honor of Memorial Day, our library will be closed on Monday, May 27th, as we pay tribute to the brave men and women who made sacrifices for our country. We will resume our regular hours on Tuesday, May 28th, opening our doors at 9 am to serve you. Let’s also delve into some fascinating historical facts about Memorial Day, did you know Before Memorial Day became its official name, the holiday was often referred to as “Decoration Day” due to the tradition of decorating the graves of the fallen soldiers.

General John A Logan who was the Representative of Illinois issued the order to observe Memorial Day on May 30th in 1868.
