Community

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

We at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library recognize and love the diversity of our community. It’s a wonderful thing to have people of different cultures and backgrounds associate and trade ideas. We love this aspect for our community and want to do everything we can to foster this. As such, the library is excited to be spending the next month celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. This wonderful celebration will allow us to learn more about Hispanic cultures, and gain a greater appreciation of the great things they have. Here are a few of the things that you can do at the library to gain a better appreciation of Hispanic culture.
