Small Acts of Kindness

January 2023 (lower level)


Everyone can honor Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Day of Service. With small acts we can work towards positive change. The Lake Oswego Public Library invites children to complete a bingo card of small acts. Return a completed card for a small gift honoring Dr. King’s message. Cards will be available beginning January 2 and can be returned until January 31.


In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, which transformed Martin Luther King Jr. Day into a day dedicated to volunteer service in honor of Dr. King’s legacy. On and around Monday, January 16, 2023, communities all across the country will be celebrating the 28th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. A federal holiday that began as a commemoration of Dr. King’s birthday is now a day dedicated to encouraging and empowering Americans to participate in community service. Dr. King’s steadfast commitment to service has inspired people all around the United States and the world to work together to make positive change.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’

– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
