The Martin Luther King Jr. Library opened in May 1970. In addition to general library materials, our library houses a special collection about Martin Luther King Jr. for adults and children. Another special collection is the Samuel C. Pannell African American Collection, established in memory of the late Sacramento City Councilman, which contains fiction and nonfiction for adults written by or about African Americans.

For homework help, visit our Homework Zone, where drop-in homework help for school-aged and high school children is available on certain days of the week.
