On Monday, October 10, the library service desk will be open from 12:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Loan and reserve services will be available during those hours, and librarians will answer reference questions and resume consultations on Tuesday, October 12.

In 2021, former Mayor Kim Janey signed an executive order to establish the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Boston. The observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day seeks to honor the cultures and remember the history of Native Americans in this country.
