Labor Day – End of Summer

Labor Day is an American holiday celebrated on the first Monday of September. This day honors those in the workforce who make a difference and support the well-being of our nation. The first time this holiday was officially celebrated was in Oregon in 1887, and it became an official federal holiday in 1894.

A lot of towns and cities have a Labor Day parade, and many businesses close for the day or for the weekend, including the library. This day is a great time to honor anyone who works for a living, including construction crews, city workers, doctors and nurses, farmers, truck drivers, first responders, and so many others.
