Did you know that Labor Day celebrations have their roots right here in New York City? The holiday can be traced back to a workers’ march in Union Square on Sept. 5, 1882. To learn more, check out last year’s post on the meaning and history of Labor Day.
We hope that you have a safe, relaxing, and reflective holiday weekend. Whether you’ve already begun classes or this is your last bit of summer break, we wish you luck for the fall semester and hope that you’ll visit often.
All library locations will be closed on Sunday & Monday September 6th-7th in observation of the holiday.
