Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Takoma Park Library

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

We will be observing and celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the Takoma Park DC Library this Saturday, Jan. 15. Beginning at 2 pm, families can head to the children's room for a special Martin Luther King Day story time.  Afterwards, join us for a craft and cake to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King. 

Here's a list of items you can check out of a DC library near you to celebrate at home!
(Takoma Park has most of these on the shelf - ask us if you need help or want to order a copy.)
