Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. At Your Library!
In the many years since his assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has evolved into a symbol for the entire civil rights movement in the United States. Every year the nation celebrates all of the ideals, beliefs and accomplishments of this great man around his birthday. This year is no exception, so why not visit your local branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System to participate in some King Celebration Programs? Programs range in appeal from children to adults and can be found in branches throughout the system. You can also check the events calendar for updated events and programs at your local branch. While you're in the library, why not browse for more information about Dr. King? Biographies, journal articles, and many films documenting the life and times of Dr. King can be found throughout the library system.
The Auburn Avenue Research Library also has many upcoming programs and events in recognition of the 2012 Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, and you can check their event listings here.
Please be aware that all branches of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System will be closed on Monday, January 16, 2012 in recognition of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. Branches will reopen at their regularly scheduled times on Tuesday, January 17, 2012.
