The cover image for this 2009 boo was shot by Jaems Karales during the 1963 march from Selma to Montgomery.

During the past few years we’ve seen a boom in books on the Civil Rights Movement.

The holidays are over and school and work are back in session.  Don’t forget, though, that another holiday is coming up in just 2 weeks!

Martin Luther King Day will be celebrated on Monday, January 17 this year. Learn more about the civil rights leader and the holiday to honor him from The King Center.

This federal holiday coincides with final exams for some schools, so we’re having an open study hall on Sunday January 16.  Free food & drinks will be offered for teens who come to the library to study or take a study break between 1:00-4:30 that day.

On January 17, we’re also hosting an Iron Chef competition for teens.  Register here.
