Library asks teens to get active in their community

DeKALB – Dr. King inspired change through peaceful protest.

During the week prior to Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Jan. 14 through Jan. 21 – teens can participate in an activism activity at the DeKalb Public Library to raise awareness of something in need of change. What would you like to change at your school, in your neighborhood, in town or in the country?

Using supplies available in the Teen Room, teens can create a protest sign that carries their message. These will then be displayed as part of a tribute to the accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. on the day in which he is honored – Jan. 21 – and through the end of the month.

This free activity is for students in grades 6-12.
