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.

  • 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!
