Welcome to the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Virtual Library! 

It's a great place to find a collection of informative links, resources, news and projects. Students visit the library technology center with their class once a week to acquire information literacy skills, conduct research on school projects, and borrow books from our growing collection of titles.


News and Announcements

  • Library updates March 2018
    Can you believe it's already March! The 2017-2018 school year has been a busy one in the library! Kindergarteners have learned about choosing good books and taking care of them. First graders have practiced alphabetical order, and are now completing an author study on Kevin Henkes. Second graders are beginning Baseball Card Biographies - reports about famous people that will resemble baseball cards when we're done. Third graders finished completing over 15 independent tasks in the library - they are expert library users now! Fourth graders are researching different states in the U.S., and fifth graders are learning about finding credible sources on the Web. Phew!

    This week the entire school is beginning our Spring Reading Challenge -- complete your "Shelfie" between now and April 6th and get to vote on the crazy thing that Mrs. Petitt will do! But 70% of MLK students have to turn in a Shelfie in order for Mrs. Petitt to get crazy -- can we do it?? Stay tuned!

    The Annual Scholastic Book Fair is coming up in the library April 3-6 -- get excited!

    More to come as these and other fun events get underway, so check back often!

  • Science Week at King

    Did you know gold is actually the ash of a dying star? Have you ever thought about our bodies as cities full of cells? Have you wondered how scientists are looking for life in outer space? Do you know what you are breathing into your lungs? Does melting arctic sea ice raise sea levels?


    These are just a few of the questions students at the King School pondered this week during our Science Week, April 11-15. Students were treated to presentations from a number of our parents who work in science and technology fields. Many thanks to Christopher Carr, Frank Keutsch, Lynette Sholl, Sara Nelson, Rebecca Xiong, Tao Ye and Christina Lively for their fascinating and thought-provoking presentations on searching for life beyond earth, rocks and minerals, climate change, mineral deposits in the lungs, pediatrics, nutrition labels, the immune system, artificial intelligence and the science of sound. What a unique learning opportunity for both students and teachers! Thank you for making it a success!

  • New King Library Space
    Students have been enjoying the brand new King Library space. It is a much larger, brighter and airier space with comfortable reading areas for students to sit and enjoy a good book. We are looking forward to working on more multi-media projects with students in our new media space!
