Danny Glover's newest lethal weapon?
A library book.
The actor paid a visit to the Benning Neighborhood Library in Northeast today.
Glover did some Q&A with elementary school students, and read to them "Martin's Big Words," an award-winning children's book about Martin Luther King Jr.
Glover is supporting the Lubuto Library Project, which funds libraries and education programs in Africa.
The group also connects volunteers in North America and Europe with peers in Africa through community service.
