Never Too Young or Too Old To Learn About the Constitution

Taking a closer look at a children's book held by City of Fayetteville Library Assistant Charlotte Stargell are Heather and Kirsten Siegerdt.

"Have you read the Constitution lately?" asks the James Waldrop Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Week display at the City of Fayetteville Library.

The Constitution of the United States is 223 years old, the oldest surviving of its kind in the world, and defines our government, rights, and responsibilities as citizens.

In 1956, President Eisenhower signed Public Bill 915 which established the nationwide annual observance of Constitution Week as September 17-23.  The aim of this celebration is to encourage our citizens to read the Constitution so we may protect and defend it, and to study the historical events surrounding its signing.

The James Waldrop Chapter DAR of Fayetteville encourages all citizens  to read the Constitution during this time of our nation's celebration.
