This year, Constitution Day (Sept 17) falls on a Saturday, and so some of these events will take place during the week before the 17th.
The Ort Library and the Office of Civic Engagement have invited Ben Franklin back for a visit on Thursday, September 15. He will be available in the library from 11-2, but also plans to visit the Lane Center for a short time around noon. Stop by to say hello to Ben, pick up a free Pocket Constitution, and help yourself to some refreshments!
The Constitution Center is offering a variety of virtual events, including the following. Visit the link below for more information and registration links.:
