Constitution Day

In honor of Constitution Day and The September Project, the library has created a display highlighting books and government documents from our collection on the First Amendment.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was ratified on December 15th, 1791. It reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

You can check-out any of the books on display. We’re also giving out free pamphlets on the Constitution and the U.S. Government, while supplies last. For online resources, see our Constitution Day Research Guide.
