The Library will be CLOSED during the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 16
This will be a staff training day.
2023 is the 28th anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Established to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King, it’s the only federal holiday that is also designated by Congress as a national day of service. On this day, we embrace the idea that citizenship involves taking an active role in improving communities.
