Labor Day 2013
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.”
