Asian Pacific Heritage Month Celebrations

Asian Pacific Heritage Month Celebrations

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month here at Harris County Public Libraries. A celebration of Asian and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

Here in Seabrook the month of May gives us a chance to appreciate, honor and celebrate the cultures and heritages of our fellow citizens from those areas. To help celebrate we have planned several events here at Evelyn Meador.
