Presidents' Day

The library will be closed on Monday, February 18th, 2008 for Presidents' Day.

Who is your favorite President? We all have one.

An informal poll in the library produced the following list: Carter, Clinton, FDR, Reagan, Jefferson, Washington, Harding, Lincoln, George W. Bush, and JFK.

This holiday, why not take some time and read up on your favorite president. Better yet, read up on one you know nothing about. Likely candidates: Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Frankline Pierce, and John Tyler.
