Celebrate Martin Luther King's Spirit of Service!
The Palomar College Student
'I Have a Dream' speech is perhaps Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr.'s best known proclamation. However his life from 1963-1968 was earmarked by a deepening level of service to all Americans.
His 1967 address Where Do We Go from Here and
his last speech,
given to a group in Memphis, reflected this broader vision.
This year The King
located in Atlanta GA near the Ebenezer Baptist Church where
King once preached, is sponsoring a campaign called 'No
Shots Fired' to promote Dr. King's legacy of non-violence and peace throughout
our nation and around the world.
The United States signed legislation to commemorate Dr.
King's birthday as a national holiday in 1983, and in 1994
further enhanced the celebration by making it a
National Day of Service.
Details on formally creating a 'day of service' event are
located on the official website
http://mlkday.gov/. Opportunities to serve the community are
available year round using a zip code search from the website
for the non-profit
agency All for Good.
The library is in the process of
implementing a new catalog called WorldCat. New features
are being added daily, and final implementation is slated to
begin on Dec. 19.
As with our previous catalog, you can search for books, DVDs and
other items held by the Palomar College Library. New
features will also allow users to search for items owned at
regional and national libraries, as well as articles in the
library's research databases. Stay tuned for more information on
WorldCat as we migrate to this new system.
