Closed MLKThe Hampton Library will be CLOSED on
Monday, January 21, 2019 
in observance of Martin Luther King Day  

Legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved  Community." from

With Kanopy you can stream video footage of Dr. King's I Have a Dream Speech, as well as documentaries, films and specials about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Rights Movement.
