Happy Fourth of July!

We're closed tomorrow, July Fourth, for Independance Day. If you're looking for something beyond fireworks and cookouts, as enjoyable as those are, you can learn more about the Declaration of Independance at the National Archives site.

There are also many, many books in our library about the American Revolution, biographies of people like Thomas Jefferson, the author of the declaration etc.

Pictured here is the 1940 painting by Christy of the signing of the Declaration of Independance.
