Hispanic Heritage Month is one of several “heritage months” that highlight cultures and contributions. “During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.” (Source: https://www.hispanicheritagemonth.org) Many libraries participate in heritage month events. The National Hispanic Heritage Month Library of Congress page has collections and partners. The Programming Librarian’s page, from American Library Association, has ideas for learning more.
