Why Does the Library Celebrate MLK Day?

In 1985, Gloria Coles was the director of Flint Public Library.  She decided to host a program to honor Dr. King at the Library because she thought his words of brotherhood, hope and peace were important to the entire community.  She was right!  They were important then, and they still are important today.  That’s why Flint Public Library celebrates this national holiday every year with a program to unite people in honor of Dr. King. 

Our celebration has grown to be one of the largest in the community.  So please celebrate Martin Luther King Day with us on Monday, January 16.  See our calendar for more event details.  We hope to see you there!
