The law library will be closed on Monday, September 6th, to celebrate the Labor Day holiday. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. The law library’s in-person, remote assistance, and statewide chat services will resume on Tuesday, September 7th.



The holiday is rooted in protest, with the the first Labor Day “celebration” occurring in New York City in 1882 when 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square to protest poor working conditions and unfair pay.


Labor Day was signed into law June 28, 1894, by President Grover Cleveland as a concession to labor unions after he disastrously sent in federal troops to quell the Pullman Strike a few months prior. The Labor Day holiday is observed the first Monday in September.
