Kids of the World Unite!

Join us at the library for Martin Luther King Jr. Week this year, and learn how social protest movements throughout the 20th century have shaped the future. Kids will have an opportunity to generate their own ideas for making the world a better place and create their own protest signs. This activity will culminate in a kids' unity march throughout the interior of the library. Best for kids, ages 5-12 years.
