January at Old Town Books

It’s a brand new year at OTB! It’s always crazy taking down the Christmas decorations and returning to business as usual, but we have plenty of exciting things still going on!

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is Monday, January 16th this year, and to celebrate, we have curated a wonderful selection of titles, both for children and adults, about the life and accomplishments of the great Martin Luther King, Jr. You can browse all of these selections below. After January 16th, we will be replacing our MLK table with a table all of books about birds.
