Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th. Started in 1968, this month is dedicated to honoring the histories, cultures and contributions of those in the Latinx community. It begins in the middle of the month of September because the 15th is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, with Mexico and Chile coming after, on the 16th and 18th. This culture is vibrant and its history important. That said, here is a selection of books for all ages that celebrate the intricacies of what Hispanic heritage truly means. 



Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
