A vehicular rearview mirror assembly includes a mirror housing, a mirror, and a light assembly. The light assembly is supported within a channel in the mirror housing for slidable movement from a retracted position behind the mirror to an extended position adjacent the mirror. The light assembly includes a light housing and a light emitting device adapted to provide sufficient light to illuminate the face of a user. The light assembly is operatively connected to a switch which prevents the light emitting device from operating unless the vehicle transmission is in a park setting.
