Constitution Day 2022

Constitution Day is September 17! Join us in celebrating this important day of our nation.

Sep 12, 2022
Join us as we celebrate Constitution Day this month, which is on September 17! Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. This holiday is traditionally observed on Sept. 17 because that is the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in Philadelphia.
Celebrate Constitution Day with us this week by taking a look at the Library's Constitution Day Research Guide, where you will find a 5-question quiz. Help us celebrate by testing your knowledge of the Constitution by taking the Library's online quiz competition. The quiz is available Monday, Sept. 12, through Friday, Sept. 16.Those who complete the quiz and get all the answers correct will be entered into a drawing to receive a prize from the new ODU Bookstore.
