Recognized annually from September 15 to October 15, Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to reflect on the history, culture, and contributions of the large and diverse community of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
This is an excellent opportunity to honor and learn more about the group's unique voices and perspectives by checking out the Library District’s FREE Heritage Month events and enriching programs! From live concerts to art exhibits or fun craft classes, we have something for everyone happening at our 25 unique branches throughout the month.
We have also compiled a selection of books, music, and movies that you can check out, download, or stream from our vast collection. You will also find educational and entertaining online resources that you can browse 24/7 with your FREE library card!
Don't have your library card? No problem! You can #GetCarded on our website for instant access to a world of discovery that will help you commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month 2022.
