National Hispanic Heritage Month Is Here

Hispanic Heritage Month has been celebrated September 15 through October 15 since 1988. At the Petworth Interim Library, we have a related display of many different materials, for all ages, next to our new nonfiction. They are for, about and by Hispanics and their contributions to life in the United States of America.

We are fortunate to have materials in Spanish at Petworth as well, for your reading pleasure. Check out these links about Hispanic Heritage Month in the U.S.:
