No Need to Rally Today to Save Sunday Hours at MLK Library - Celebrate Instead!

Today was supposed to be the day that library users and supporters would rally at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library to save the Sunday hours that had been cut from the DC budget. The MLK Library is the only DC public library currently open on Sunday -- and that is the most popular day for use.

However, we learned on Friday that the rally has been cancelled due to complete victory on the party of the pro-Sunday-hours campaigners, who clearly did all the right things when it comes to getting through to council members, marshalling their facts, and showing the strength of their support.

Congratulations to all who brought about this impressive outcome! And we wish you a pleasant Sunday at the library (much more relaxing than marching around outside with bullhorns).
