Constitution Day in the Library

On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. That's reason enough for the Gordon Library to celebrate.
So on September 17, 2009, the official U.S. Constitution Day, Director Myron Schirer-Suter and his library staff gathered around a display of books on the Constitution in the Jenks Library lobby for a photo op. From left to right: Janet Bjork of Beverly, Schirer-Suter of Beverly, Karen Rogati of Essex, Karen Wolfe of Rockport, Anna Appa of Ipswich, Randall Gowman of South Hamilton, and Beckie Aiken of Beverly.
The library staff also invited the Gordon community to celebrate Constitution Day by showing a continuous loop of three 20-minute videos on the Constitution from noon to 9 p.m in Jenks Library. And they created a Constitution Day Web page for every citizen’s enjoyment: http://www.gordon.edu/library_news/constitution_day.
