Many people chose to serve their communities on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We meet some folks who serve year-round and approach volunteerism in ways you may never have considered.
The holiday season is upon us and books make excellent gifts for the littlest readers on your list. Stories inspired by blizzards, the Civil Rights movement and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousef are popping up on bookstore and library shelves. We consider those and other titles perfect for sharing with the kids and teens in your life.
