Fall Books For Kids To Celebrate Autumn

Fall Books for Kids at the Library

Fall is the perfect time to snuggle up with a mug of apple cider and a big stack of fall books! These children’s books about fall are perfect for learning about the changing of seasons and the cool, crisp days ahead. Although the leaves and weather may not be changing just yet, we can always dive into a good book to take us there. Take a peek at our autumn picks because the kids (and you!) are going to just fall in love with these books.

Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month (celebrated September 15 through October 15) recognizes the history, culture and contributions of American citizens of Spanish and Latin American origin. It encompasses several smaller holidays and independence days in the 30-day period. At it's heart, though, it is an 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.
