Happy Presidents' Day

This Monday, February 20, we will be closed in observance of Presidents’ Day. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington’s birthday, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. If you’d like to find resources to commemorate the holiday with your family, we invite you to explore GovInfo’s Presidents’ Day page for access to official federal government publications pertaining to this day, or use your complimentary BrainPOP subscription for more learning opportunities. Enjoy the long weekend!
