The Martin Luther King Jr. Library opened on Monday, May 18, 1970.

In addition to general library materials, our library features the Samuel C. Pannell African American Collection, established in memory of the late Sacramento City Councilman. This collection is intended to tell the African American story to a broad public audience as well as celebrate diversity and accomplishment within our country and community. The collection primarily includes works by and about African Americans as well as online access to the African American Experience: The American Mosaic database.
