This weekend, artwork made by fourth- and fifth-grade students from John Eaton Elementary school in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. will be on display in the book store on the National Mall at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.

In a program sponsored by the Cleveland Park Friends of the Library, the students worked with the children’s staff to make the quilts and the canvases. The students learned about Martin Luther King Jr. by watching a documentary about his life, reading the books provided during the program and a discussion led by the librarians.
