Picturing America

September has several particularly American holidays: Labor Day, Patriot Day, and Constitution Day.

The Picturing America books reflect our American history and culture. In addition, the libraries have books on these September observances.

If you’d like to know more about Labor Day, there are several books to choose from. There was even a hurricane on Labor Day: Storm of the Century; the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935.

Much has been written about the September 11 attacks. Closure, the Untold Story of the Ground Zero Recovery Mission and September 11 Terrorist
are just two of many.

To find out more about the U. S. Constitution take a look at Creation of the U.S. Constitution by Loreta Medina or Everything American Government Book by Nick Ragone. There is even a book about the ship named the U.S.S. Constitution by Jason Cooper.
