Monday, January 20th is a federal holiday honoring the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and many utilize this day as a time for rest and personal enjoyment.
However, this year at the Hoyt Library we are taking a different approach. We are remembering Reverend Martin Luther King through a day of national service to our community. With this, we are asking patrons to bring non-perishable, yet not-expired, food items to our facility. There are individuals within our own backyard that need our assistance. All proceeds will be donated to our area food kitchen. This is a one-time only event.
Please look for the “MLK” marked boxes at either inside entrances of the library to place your donations in Honor of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
In addition, a limited supply of posters and markers will be made available for children to use at the library. With these supplies, children will have the distinct opportunity to design a poster depicting their personal view of what community service is all about, the option to create a Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. creation, or the option to bring a poster that was created at home. These works of art will be displayed throughout the library.
Also, don’t forget to stay awhile to check out the Hoyt Library’s Martin Luther King Jr. book displays, posters, videos, and coloring pages for children!
