Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration

Monday, January 15, 2018

The Coralville Public Library will present a public reading of Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream Speech” in the Library Rotunda.

The Coralville Public Library will present a public reading of Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream Speech” at 5 pm on Monday, January 15 in the Library Rotunda. Readers will include a variety representatives from local government, library partners, and community groups who work to make Dr. King's vision a reality.

The event is part of a month-long celebration of Coralville's diverse community. Throughout the month the Library will highlight diverse books for readers of all ages in our book portals and have displays on the changing demographics of Coralville. Our Community Resources Room will feature a display about the 1964 Freedom Summer voter registration project in Mississippi, with items from the Eric Morton Civil Rights Papers from the University of Iowa and the personal collection of Shelton Stromquist, UI Emeritus Professor of History.

Library patrons will also be encouraged to share their own dreams for a more just world, and the library will display them throughout the month.
