Happy (almost) Leap Day!
That’s right, tomorrow is that special bonus day that comes around once every four years. The date of February 29 is added in various solar calendars, including the Gregorian calendar, to the years divisible by four to account for the fact that the Earth’s orbital revolution around the sun takes longer than 365 days. The addition of a Leap Day compensates for this lag and realigns the calendar with the Earth’s position to keep the seasons on track. Cool, huh?
All of that means… we get an extra day in 2020! So, why not spend it at the Free Library? Here are a few fun ways you can celebrate with us:
Head to your neighborhood library! Beginning last year, all Free Library locations now offer six-day service and are open on Saturdays. Check with your local library before heading out for a storytime or another fun event near you!
Dig in to our online calendar to learn more about the event offerings available across the city tomorrow.
No matter what you decide to do, make the most of your bonus day!
