Rapid City Public Library kicks off Constitution week

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Constitution was established 232 years ago. To celebrate Constitution Day former first lady Dolley Madison took a trip to the local library.

Of course, the really Dolley Madison is no longer alive, but she was portrayed by Diana Glover. Glover is a retired teacher and American History buff.

Dolley was the wife of President James Madison, who is known as the father of the Constitution.

She was his political partner and the Rapid City Public Library thought she could speak on the Constitution.

 “Many people do care about the Constitution and upholding it but I’m afraid many people are also not really aware of what the Constitution says. I think it’s a wonderful document and we need to hold it and cherish it,” said Glover.

Tuesday was the first day of national Constitution week.
