I think libraries should be open on a holiday, especially on one where both parents and children have off (of course this should not apply to July 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas). A library is a wonderful place for families to spend a day or at least part of a day. I decided yesterday that I would visit my local library to get a card and maybe check out a book, but it was CLOSED. Acckkk! I'll head there tomorrow after my make and take for another try.
