On this day, 4 July 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year on July 4th, also know as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.
...but of course, what's a holiday without a holiday themed storytime with Ms. Debi?! Ms. Debi read 4th of July themed books; sang familiar songs; and provided the kids with a fun Uncle Sam mask to create and wear.
Unfortunately the library branches were closed for the holiday; however, we are now back open and still celebrating the holiday throughout the branch.
