Online Resources for MLK Day Celebration

The day set aside to nationally honor Atlantan Martin Luther King Jr. is Monday, January fifteenth this year!  Fulton County Library System has a wealth of online resources to help celebrate this local Nobel Prize Winner. Some of our many options for downloadable content for the holiday include:

  • Materials for lesson plans, reports, and essays on our Infobase platforms, including the African American History Online portal are easy to embed in reports, slide shows, and import to Google Classroom.
  • Use library resources to read up on the history of the national day of service and find ways to engage with your community.
  • Arrange for your group or family to visit the Auburn Avenue Research Library (AARL) at any time of the year to explore their many exhibits or events. Located on the same street as MLK's historic home, church, and final resting place, AARL is a branch of the Fulco Library system with connections to the local history that shaped this internationally celebrated leader. Not all exhibits and events are suitable for all ages, so use their website to check the calendar of events or make contact in advance before your visit. AARL is not open on MLK Day, but does welcome visitors all year round to explore Atlanta's unique role in Civil Rights History.
