The library will be closed for Veterans Day weekend Nov. 9-11.
According to Credo Reference's Veterans Day topic page, the holiday began in 1926 as Armistice Day, which commemorated the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. In 1954, it was renamed Veterans Day to honor veterans of all wars, and in 1971 it became a federal holiday.
