On September 17, 1787, the Founders of our country signed arguably "the most influential document in American history, the U.S. Constitution" (National Constitution Center). We invite you to join us in recognizing this important event by taking time to familiarize yourself with the U.S. Constitution. Small "pocket" copies are freely available at the Circulation Desk, September 14-19, 2023. We also offer an online companion guide with books and videos about the Constitution and its Founders, as well as quizzes to test your knowledge.
