Constitution Day display

"Explore Citizenship: Constitution Day - September 17" is on display through September 21st in the Renne Library display case in the main lobby.

On September 17, 1787, the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting to sign the Constitution of the United States of America. In just four hand-written pages, the Constitution gives us the blueprint for our democratic government.
