  Martin Luther King Jr. has been popular with the kids at the Saugus Public Library this month.

  “The kids recognize him when they come in and are eager to color his picture and hear stories about him,” said Amy Melton, head of the Children’s Department at the library.

  A number of books about the late civil rights leader are on display throughout the library, offering children the opportunity to learn about him. “There are some good books here so that parents can read to their children,” Melton said.

  “And those kids who can read can learn about who he was,” she said.
