Presidents Day Reads

Presidents Day Reads, Presidents Day, Jacksonville Public Library

Presidents Day began as a holiday to honor the birth of George Washington on February 22, 1732 and is still officially called Washington's Birthday.  Now the day honors all Presidents.  Pick a Presidential biography to bone up on one of the 44 men to live in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  Only pick one though, because these are long reads.
