This facility is a unique collaboration between San Jose Public libraries and San Jose State University Library. Named after icon Martin Luther King, Jr., this library provides a wealth of activities for children, reading classes, storytelling and more. An extensive foreign language collection includes many books in Spanish and Vietnamese, especially for kids, so it is a boon for non-English speakers and those wanting to learn a second language. Also check out the California Room, where you can do historical research about the San Jose area. Internet access workstations are available free to the public.

In 2003 San José State University and the City of San José came together to form a unique partnership to offer joint library services to citizens of San José and SJSU students and faculty at the Martin Luther King Junior Library on corner of 4th and East San Fernando Streets.

What does our collaboration mean to you, our users and supporters?

MLK-SJSU Library

Th’ first thing to have in a libry is a shelf.
Fr’m time to time this can be decorated with lithrachure.
But th’ shelf is th’ main thing.”
 Finley Peter Dunne, Mr. Dooley Says (1910)
