From September 15 - October 15 each year, communities around the U.S observe and celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. We take this time to learn, honor, and celebrate the countless contributions, histories, and achievements of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Republic of Panama, the Republic of Cuba, Central America, and South America.

Check out Timberland Library Overdrive collections en Español Audiobooks, magazines, and ebooks for all ages.

“Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation“

Ms. Irene Matos Chan

“I am biracial, and I wanted to represent my Hispanic culture and the Hispanic countries. I want people to connect to their Hispanic culture and show it and express it to their community. [The poster] expresses that you should be proud of your race no matter what it is , and be proud to show it and represent it.“

The national observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting September 15 and ending October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, with the approval of Public Law 100-402.
