Share Your MLK Library Memories

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, DC Public Library’s central library, will undergo a complete modernization, starting this year. Before the library closes, we want you to share your memories about the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. These memories may be curated and shared with the public through social media or collected by Special Collections. A Studio Lab staff member will contact you to help coordinate and execute your recording.
