Please note the library is closed on Monday, January 16 for Martin Luther King Day. The King Center notes that “the King Holiday is a time when the nation pauses to remember Dr. King’s life and work, but also to honor his legacy by making the holiday a day of community service: a day on, not a day off.” So take time to reflect, read or listen to Martin Luther King’s words, participate in an event, or do community service.
