National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15 and celebrates the contributions and cultural history of Hispanic Americans. The Library of Congress, National Archives, and Smithsonian Institution (among others) have created digital displays to commemorate the occasion, including art, audio, literature, and video. To explore these resources, go to http://hispanicheritagemonth.gov/
Check out our front window display highlighting some of our library’s resources by Hispanic authors and about Hispanic cultures, and be sure to let a librarian know if you want to take any of the display books home to read– anything in the front windows is available to check out. Just ask!
Around Durham Tech, there are some exciting events planned to celebrate, including several Latino Student Success Discussions, a Bilingual Poetry Hour, and a Latin American Film Festival (and food trucks!). Click on the flier to see more details.
