A Day of Service - MLK Day, January 18th

The library and Chattanooga State will be closed Monday, January 18th for the King Holiday. The King holiday, first observed in 1986, was changed by Congress in 1994 as a National Day of Service. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. Because of COVID-19, most of this year's service projects are virtual. You can find out more about this year's virtual day of service and projects at
