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 Center, 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 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.

New Library Catalog -- WorldCat

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.
