Rachel Kohl Community Library to Celebrate the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We will be open on Monday, January 15, 2018 and will be holding a special story time for all ages at 10:30 am, reading books about Dr. King and some encompassing the principles he fought for.
Children can write their dreams for a better tomorrow and place them on a giant peace sign displayed in the Library.
At 1 pm , we will watch the movie “Selma” (128 min. – PG-13). Golden Globe winner David Oyelowo shines as Dr. Martin Luther King, who rallied his followers on the historic march from Selma to Montgomery in the face of violent opposition, an event that became a milestone victory for the civil rights movement.
At 3:30, we will be showing the family friendly Disney movie “Ruby Bridges” (90 min.). It is the inspiring true story of six year old Ruby Bridges who was the first African-American to integrate her local New Orleans elementary school. Ruby’s heroic struggle for a better education becomes a lesson for us all.

From the Director:
2017 was quite a year for the Rachel Kohl Community Library. We welcomed new staff members and and completed repairs and renovations started in 2016. We offered hundreds of programs and revamped our collection through selective weeding and purchasing. We struggled through financially difficult and frustrating times.
Through it all, our patrons have been the source of our purpose and pride. We thank you for your generous donations, your encouraging words, your ideas and your loyalty.
As we close out 2017 and welcome 2018, we again request that you support us financially and we thank you if you have already done so.
We wish you a healthy, happy and safe new year.
