Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off.” King recognized the power of service. He famously said, "Everyone can be great because everybody can serve." Observing the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making your community a better place. MLK Day of Service encourages all types of service (learn more). Projects build communities and seek to meet the immediate needs of local community members. Our library locations are closed on Monday, January 16, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We invite you to participate in this year's #MLKDayofService.
