Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President LyndonJohnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. The holiday celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
Over the next month students will be hearing stories in the library that celebrate Hispanic Heritage. Celebrate with us!
