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.

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.
