|Martin Luther King's childhood home, Auburn Avenue, Atlanta, GA|
The Cart that Carried Martin is a brand new part of our juvenile collection on the 3rd floor of Lewis Library, and we have a wealth of other books on Dr. King waiting to be checked out.
Located on the 3rd floor
Also, don't miss the CE event on January 21st (in the Dickson Assembly room) featuring the Reverend Otis Moss, Jr., a LaGrange native and civil rights leader who attended Morehouse College and was a close, personal friend of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Reverend Moss is highly revered as a civil rights leader and continues to fight for equality and justice as well as many other causes. This is an opportunity not to miss.
Look for a new blog post about Reverend Moss's visit after January 21st!
