Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library is celebrating Older Americans Month with a display of safety tips and books on older Americans. By using the catching slogan from ACL (Administration for Community Living), the display includes a variety of books from the collection of the DC Public Library.
Each month, the MLK library hosts an Audio Storytelling Workshop in the Digital Commons. Over the course of this four-week class, students learn the skills needed to make an audio piece of their very own. Pieces students create range from anything from personal radio diaries to interviews to non-narrative sonic explorations.
World Press Freedom Day was May 3. The holiday, a joint UN/UNESCO effort, seeks to celebrate journalists who face consequences for their work and bring awareness to the obstacles that hinder press freedom worldwide.
