The Library will have shortened hours on Monday in observance of Labor Day. Don’t panic! We will be open from NOON to 1:00 AM!
The holiday is about more than just a day off from school and work. Labor Day is celebrated the first Monday in September and is a creation of the labor movement. It is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and serves as a national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Learn more about the origins of Labor Day and the Labor Movement. You can even learn more about the local history of Labor in Rochester. Be sure to check out the photo exhibit, ” Rochester: A Community of Workers.”

What is it? Why do we do it?
Daylight-savings time is the advancing of the clock one hour ahead of the local standard time in order to increase the hours of daylight available at the end of the day.
The idea originated with none other than Benjamin Franklin in the 1700s. But it didn’t really catch on until WWI when England and Germany put it into practice as a wartime measure for making full use of daylight hours. By 1925, it became permanent in England.
The U.S. also took advantage of daylight savings for both World Wars, but it didn’t become a permanent fixture for most states until the oil crisis in the mid-1960′s.
