ECRL locations closed Monday, Nov. 12, to observe Veterans Day

All East Central Regional Library locations will be closed Monday, November 12, in observance of Veterans Day. 

Veterans Day is a national holiday, first proclaimed as Armistice Day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
