Celebrated from September 15 through October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx community. This year we are celebrating with a variety of virtual programs for all ages. Join us for music, culture and stories from Latin America.
Spotlight on: Sonia De Los Santos
Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritages Month with virtual performances and programs from 2019 Latin Grammy nominee, Sonia De Los Santos. She has been hailed by Billboard as “one of the Latin Children’s music artists you should know” and "Best Latin Children's Music".

We are including "Latinx" in our celebration this year to be more inclusive of Indigenous peoples, non-Spanish speakers from Latin America, the LGBTQS2+ community and others who may be left out when using the term "Hispanic". The word "Hispanic" will still be used because it reflects the identities of many people in our community. We are also using "Heritages" to acknowledge the multicultural/multiracial heritages within the Hispanic/Latinx community. This change is in line with our core value of equity, diversity and inclusion. Other libraries across the country are moving to Latinx Heritage Month, including San Francisco Public Library and the University of Massachusetts, while LA Public Library is using Latino Heritage Month.
