Join us as we celebrate Latinx and Hispanic Heritage month with a wide range of events. Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 to acknowledge and celebrate the history, culture and contributions of Americans whose ancestry can be traced to Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America and the Spanish-speaking nations of the Caribbean. In the United States, there are about 60 million people – about 18% of the U.S. population – who have ancestries connected to these countries. Hispanic Americans has influence every part of our nation’s history, from arts to politics, from business and innovations to the military.
The Hanley Library is collaborating with the Bradford Area Public Library by promoting its new collection, "True Colors in American History." As we celebrate Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month, we want to highlight several items written by and about Latinx and Hispanic people. We hope you will take a moment to browse the highlighted items from their collection and visit the Bradford Area Public Library on 67 W. Washington Street.
