Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month @ HCPL

September 15 - October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month, and Harris County Public Library is celebrating with a variety of programs for adults, teens, and kids. We'll have music ranging from Spanish classical to Tejano. We'll have food and crafts reflecting the kaleidoscopic diversity of Hispanic culture. We'll have movies and story times and, of course, we will celebrate the greatest gift of all: chocolate!

Below is a small sampling of Hispanic Heritage Month programs, check your branch's Events Calendar to see what else is happening near you.
