Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday

We are closed today, but that doesn’t mean the Your Intrepid Blogger can miss a Monday post!

First off, the Golden Globe awards were held last night. We don’t usually watch award shows, but here is a site from a Canadian library that lists titles that inspired Golden Globe nominees and winners: How Many Have You Read?.

To commemorate today, here is a video of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. It is quite inspiring to watch. It’s interesting to note that Dr. King was inspired by Gandhi, who was inspired by Thoreau’s “Duty of Civil Disobedience”.

The Nonfiction book group meets this Thursday, 1/19, at 6:30 to discuss The Other Wes Moore. Also, don’t forget the yarn and pattern swap this Friday afternoon from 2-4. That plus the three story times makes us one busy little library!
