Mother's Day is celebrated on varying days around the world.
No matter when or where, our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and other influential women deserve to be honored for the nurturing, guidance and wisdom they share with us each day.
Woodrow Wilson declared Mother's Day to be a national holiday in 1914 after the tireless work of activists Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis who promoted honoring these important women in our lives. However you choose to observe the occasion, the Denver Public Library wishes you and your family a very happy day.
