Hispanic Heritage Month

September 1, 2012 at 12:00 am

National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15-October 15 and the library has prepared a number of resources, contests and programs for this cultural celebration.  So whether you want to dance away the afternoon at a Flamenco concert or learn how to make a piñata, the library is the place to be for Hispanic Heritage month!

The Florida Department of Education has put together an Hispanic Heritage Month 2012 Recommended Reading List which includes suggestions for young children, teens and even adults.  The links below contain children’s books from these lists available from our library:

And be sure to check out the library’s Hispanic Heritage page for detailed information about contests for children, teens and adults. Students in grades K-5 are invited to design a bookmark celebrating “Our Hispanic Heritage.”  Information about last year’s winners, including a link to our Facebook album of last year’s winning entries can be viewed here.

Find a wealth of information about National Hispanic Heritage Month, including audio/visual exhibitions, images and presentations by visiting this dedicated site hosted by the Library of Congress.

For more information about these and other FREE resources available @ your library®, call (813) 273-3652 or visit http://www.hcplc.org/.
