Martin Luther King Day, a Day On

In the volunteer world, MLK Day is a day of civic service, as encouraged by the King Holiday and Service Act, signed into law in 1994. It is a way to honor and transfor King's life and teachings into community service. As all Sac Public Library branches are closed on Monday, the Central Library Volunteer Program celebrated MLK Day with an Evening of Service on Dr. King's actual birthday, Thursday, January 15th.

16 volunteers served a total of 44 man hours and accomplished the following:

  • Cleaned 1,530 books

  • Barcoded the front cover of 625 books

  • Labeled and taped 977 spine labels

  • Found 2 books that were mis-shelved.

Special Thanks to Toppingz Pizza for supporting volunteer service on this special evening.
