National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15-October 15
This is a time to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The Library’s book display this month, located on the second floor, features titles by members of and about our nation’s Hispanic cultures and communities.
These materials can be checked out by members of the Mitchell Hamline community so if you see something you are interested in, contact email@example.com.
Display and bibliography developed by Kelsey Schmidt and Steve Liska.
