DULUTH, MN-- It's National Hispanic Heritage Month, and the Duluth Public Library is celebrating with a special display.
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 through October 15.
The library has displays in both the youth services and the adult sections, featuring Hispanic authors and illustrators.
The books on display are switched out each week, so there's always something new to find.
Lyanne Valdez with the Duluth Public Library says it's critical that American libraries recognize National Hispanic Heritage Month, as 60-point-five million Latin Americans call the United States home.
"There are a lot of Hispanic authors and illustrators in the world. So especially during the month of September 15 through October 15 it's important for us to highlight what the Latino community has done for Duluth and for the whole country," Valdez said.
There are Hispanic Heritage Displays at the downtown Duluth, West Duluth, and Mount Royal library locations.
You just need a library card to check out a book, and September is also National Library Card Sign-Up Month.
