Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 — a nod to the anniversaries of national independence of numerous Latin American countries — and runs through October 15.

At NPL, we celebrate Latino people and traditions both past and present through arts and crafts workshops, book clubs, puppet shows, Collection Spotlights, dance demonstrations, and more.
