Hispanic Heritage Month Display

Every year during the period September 15 - October 15, the country celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month honoring the culture, heritage, and history of Spain, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. 

This four-week period includes the independence anniversaries of Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatamala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.  Columbus Day, or Dia de la Raza, also falls within this period.

The display case just inside the front doors of LLR features books from the Library's collection that cover many aspects of Hispanic culture.
