Schools & Many Offices Closed for King Holiday

Monday, people across Nevada, California, and the rest of the United States are observing Martin Luther King Day -- a national holiday first observed in 1986.

All state and federal offices, including U.S. post offices, are closed.
So are most schools, banks, credit unions, and financial markets. Most county and city employees will have the day off as well.

Yesterday, people honored the late civil rights leader's life with a special service at Second Baptist Church on Montello Street in Reno. Parishioners and others learned more about King's dream, and how they can strive to fulfill it.

Another M.L.K. service is scheduled for Monday at 11 AM at the Second Baptist Church.
