Known across the world for his advocacy of physician-assisted suicide, Royal Oak patrons and staff knew Jack Kevorkian as a kind, elderly man. He’d often stop in the library to do research and use our computers. His patience with people who recognized him knew no bounds. In honor of his death, and as our way of remembering Dr. Kevorkian, the library has put up a small display of books and media about him. Among the titles is the recent HBO film entitled You Don’t Know Jack. And don’t forget to visit our Local History Room for newspaper clippings/articles about Dr. Kevorkian.
