DULUTH, MN– It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month, and the Duluth Public Library is celebrating with a special exhibit.
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15.
The library has exhibits in youth departments and adult sections, featuring Hispanic authors and illustrators.
The books on display are changed weekly, so there is always something new to be found.
Lyanne Valdez, of the Duluth Public Library, says it’s critical that American libraries recognize National Hispanic Heritage Month, when 60 point five million Latin Americans live in the United States.
“There are a lot of Hispanic authors and illustrators in the world. So, especially from September 15 to October 15, it is important for us to highlight what the Latin American community has done for Duluth and for the whole country, ”Valdez said.
There are Hispanic heritage exhibits at downtown Duluth, West Duluth and Mount Royal libraries.
You just need a library card to view a book, and September is also National Library Card enrollment month.
