Hispanic Heritage Celebration!!!!

It was a hit!
Dancers from the Maru Montero company

This Saturday, we had the pleasure of welcoming the Maru Montero dancers to our library in honor of Hispanic Heritage.  They showed us some beautiful dance moves and taught us a little bit about their traditional garb. We were also graced by Mr. Valdez and his band, who serenaded us as we ate delicious food prepared by DC Public Library staff and funded by the Takoma Park Friends of the Library.

Pupusas, horchata, tamales, arroz con gandules, arroz con leche, polvorones, frijoles, crema -- we had a feast!

Thank you to all who came out to listen to our performers and enjoy the bilingual story time as well as face painting! More pictures to come!
