The library does not close for Columbus Day, traditional (October 12) or observed (2nd Monday in October).

The holiday is controversial in the United States. It originated, and is still observed enthusiastically, within Italian communities.

South Dakota instead celebrates Native Americans' Day.

Leif Erikson Day is October 9th, so the Norwegians have parties too.
