WSL Closed for Presidents Day



The Wyoming State Library will be closed Monday, February 19, for Presidents Day. We will reopen on Tuesday, February 20.

We’ve compiled links to WSL database resources that celebrate Presidents Day in the United States. We hope they’re helpful as you prepare your efforts to promote the holiday locally.

In 1886, the Wyoming Territorial Legislature made George Washington’s birthday, February 22, a legal holiday. You can read it in Chapter 67 of the Session Laws for that year in Wyoming Legislation. The legal holiday is now set for the third Monday in February to commemorate both Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays.
