On Monday, January 16, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Law Library will have limited hours: noon-10:00 PM. The Reference Office will be closed.
In 1983, fifteen years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death, President Ronald Reagan signed the King Holiday Bill into law. The holiday was first observed in January, 1986. It took another 17 years for every state to recognize the holiday. In 1994, the holiday was designated a day of service under the direction of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
