Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual invitation to step into, take pride in, learn about and share a vibrant and thriving culture that is rich in history, music, great food, and beautiful art. How you choose to celebrate is up to you. At the Library, we mark the occasion with festive displays and booklists that we hope will encourage you to learn more about yourself and others.

Youth Leaders and Change Makers

International Youth Day is an annual reminder and the perfect opportunity to uplift and center the voices of young people, encourage them to take action, and to champion their efforts to engage in local, national, or global affairs. Check out this booklist for some great examples of youth leaders and change makers doing good around the world!

To celebrate International Book Lovers’ Day… That is, to celebrate you: We’ve put together two “Top 10” booklists and we really hope you show them some love (if you haven’t already)!

Books By and For People with Disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Act has reduced barriers, changed perceptions, expanded opportunities, and increased access for 31 years. To celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the ADA, the Library has put together this list of books by and for people with disabilities. It's so important for everyone to see themselves reflected what we read, watch, and listen to and for people to be able to tell their own stories regardless of their abilities.
