Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and while many have the day off, some spots are still open.
In fact, some spots are the places to be.
Let's get started:
The US Post Office will be closed, and there will not be any mail delivery.
However, the event “Share the Dream: A Celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.” is set in the children’s department at the library, to “celebrate the of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through books, songs and craft.”
As part of the library’s MLK Jr. Day of Service, participants will create cards, which will be distributed to local nursing home residents. There is no need to register for the event in advance. The event starts at 1 p.m in the multipurpose room.
Many Lakewood businesses are expected to remain open, but banks will be closed for the holiday.
