CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he hopes residents of the state don't consider Monday's Martin Luther King Day to be a non-working holiday.

The governor is urging volunteerism, and some options are listed on the state website. MLK Day has become a national day of service.

This year's theme is, "A Day On, Not a Day Off."
