¡Celebrate Hispanic Heritage!

hhm-10¡Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!  From September   15 to October 15 it is National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Do you ever wonder why it is two calendar months?

Well, it begins each year on the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries:  Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. And, it ends October 15 because Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence on October 12 (Dia de la Raza)!

The Prairie State College Library offers a wide variety of both fiction and non fiction Latino literature. Some of my favorite Latino fiction authors are the following: Sandra Cisneros, Julia Alvarez, and Junot Diaz. Come to the library to check out their work!


The library also offers fiction in both English and Spanish! Nos vemos en la Biblioteca!
