The Wyoming State Library will be closed Monday, January 16, for Martin Luther King Jr./Equality Day. We will be open our normal hours again on Tuesday, January 17.
From our Wyoming Legislation database, we find that in 1990, the Wyoming State Legislature designated the third Monday in January as a legal holiday, “Martin Luther King, Jr., Wyoming Equality Day.” (1990 Session Laws, Chapter 21)
Noted civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929. The Library of Congress has many digitized primary source materials on King in “Today in History – January 15.”
