In observance of Patriots’ Day, the Library Service Desk will be open from 12pm-7pm on Monday April 15th. We will reopen for normal hours on Tuesday.

Patriots’ Day commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord, which took place on April 19th, 1775. It is also the traditional day for the Boston Marathon. How did these two events come to be linked? Hop over to this short article by The History Channel to find out!

For those interested in celebrating, MassLive has a good rundown of all the events going on this weekend, both Minuteman and Marathon -related.

We hope you enjoy the long weekend and wish good luck to any Jumbos running the race!
