Reading Time!!

Three to five year old's (homeschoolers included) are invited to Reading Time on the 1st Thursday of each month @ 9:30-10:00.  


Labor Day--September 7

Many credit Peter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, while others have suggested that Matthew Maguire, a secretary of the Central Labor Union, first proposed the holiday. Labor Day is still celebrated in cities and towns across the United States with parades, picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays and other public gatherings. For many Americans, particularly children and young adults, it represents the end of the summer and the start of the back-to-school season. Source: history.com. 

The library will be closed Monday, September 7 in observance of Labor Day.

A Vicksburg resident and noted photographer, Melody Golding, captures the photogenic journal of those days.
