Feel free to stop by the library and visit our Constitution Day book display – you can even pick up a FREE pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution.  The pocket constitutions are located near the main entrance on the second floor. If you’re not on campus, we encourage you to visit the library’s online Constitution Day guide for more information.

Constitution Day is an American federal observance that commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.  In 2004, Congress mandated that schools receiving federal funding provide education about the Constitution on Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, which is observed nationally on September 17th.
