Pick up your copy of the U.S. Constitution, Sept 17

September 17th marks the 226th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. If you haven’t read the Constitution, now is your chance to get your very own copy to celebrate Constitution Day.
Thanks to Representative Dave Loebsack, you can pick up a pocket-sized copy at the following locations tomorrow – while supplies last:
  • Main Library Learning Commons Service Desk
  • Java House, Washington St.
  • T’Spoons, Old Capitol Mall

Although the U.S. Constitution is a fairly short document, it is the defining outline of the United States government and the source of rights, freedoms and responsibilities of citizens. The Constitution is the highest law in the land and all other laws must comply with its mandates.
