Due to many things going around the start of this celebration two weeks ago (including Banned Books Week planning), we apologize for not recognizing National Hispanic Heritage Month here sooner!
This celebration, running September 15 – October 15, honors the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
Find the official site (which explains why the month starts midway through), plus a variety of library resources and Websites in our Hispanic Heritage Month Guide!
