Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15! Read along with us to celebrate the generations of Hispanic Americans who have contributed greatly to our nation. Put these titles on hold today and read them aloud to your family during Hispanic heritage Month!
At our upcoming history programs, we’re discussing Giant Ground Sloths and Bermuda Triangle extraterrestrial activity. Bet you didn’t think you’d learn about these topics at the library. These aren’t your average history lectures!
