Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

All San Antonio Public Library locations are closed Monday, Jan. 15 to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a social justice hero whose actions and powerful speeches propelled the Civil Rights Movement and brought lasting change to our nation.

If you’d like to learn more about Martin Luther King, Jr., and his extraordinary life, there are many books about him at our libraries – books for readers of all ages. For instance, Martin Luther King Jr.: Great Civil Rights Leader by Jennifer Fandel is a biography written in a graphic-novel format. This book covers his life from birth to tragic death and includes direct quotations from some of his well-known speeches.
