Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 - October 15

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated each year to honor the independence of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, México and Chile. Hispanic Americans also include those with South American, Cuban, and Puerto Rican origins. It is a time for all Hispanic Americans, our largest and fastest growing community, to celebrate their culture!

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute has chosen this year’s theme to be "Building Our Future, Together." In honor of this month, here is a list of books, websites and videos that will help you learn more about Hispanic American history and culture. This includes juvenile fiction and nonfiction, young adult fiction and nonfiction, adult fiction and nonfiction, DVDs, and websites. All books and videos are available at the Norfolk Public Library.
