November Holiday Hours: Veterans Day

vets.jpgThe Law Library, and all Utah State Courts, will be closed on Wednesday, November 11 in honor of Veterans Day. Regular library hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) resume on November 12.

November 11 has been a legal holiday since 1938, when an Act was approved to primarily honor World War I veterans. In 1954, President Eisenhower issued a proclamation declaring that the day be set aside to honor all veterans. For more information about the history and significance of Veterans Day, check out the Department of Veterans Affairs page.

In addition, the Library of Congress has sponsored the Veterans History project and provided access to interviews, memoirs, and photographs of veterans of various wars.

Many Veterans Day celebrations are being held around the state on November 11, including the University of Utah's Veterans Day Commemoration.
