Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service. To honor his life's work toward social justice, equality and community service, Congress in 1994 appointed the third Monday of every January as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, asking people to make this holiday "a day on, not a day off." Learn more about the Rev. King, his life, and opportunities for volunteerism here.
Bernardsville Public Library, open today, has a display of books about the life and writings of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the Biography area as well as at the circulation desk. Please feel to borrow any of these and other books about him in the Nonfiction wing.
If you are looking for volunteer opportunities close to home that you can continue short-term or throughout the year, please consider the library. Bernardsville Public Library gratefully accepts volunteer assistance with computer classes, VITA tax assistance, ESL (English-as-a-second-language) instruction, book processing, children's activities, the Local History Room, and many other rewarding volunteer opportunities. Please stop by or call the library at 908-766-0118 to make a difference.
