In observance of Veterans’ Day on Friday, November 10th, the Hirsh Library Service Desk will have shortened hours of 12pm – 7pm with no online chat, though building access remains unchanged. Regular hours resume on Saturday.
Veterans’ Day honors the service of U.S. military veterans. Originally called Armistice Day, it first marked the ending of World War I with an agreement signed between Germany and the Allies on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. John McCrae’s “In Flanders Field” captures the feeling of seeing poppies growing out of a scarred battlefield; they have since become a symbol of remembrance. You can read McCrae’s poem online.
Enjoy your long weekend!
