As Monday was Martin Luther King Day, our Serendipity Exhibit this week seeks to honor him, his life work, and influences. January 16th is also the National Day of Racial Healing. This week's exhibit is just one way for you to, as the Advancement Project put it, "Commit to engaging people from all racial, ethnic, religious and identity groups in genuine effors to increase understanding, communication, caring and respect for one another."

Don't forget, 1Search is available to help you with your information needs. Or ask a librarian!
