Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with HCPL!

Hispanic Heritage Month Banner

September 15 - October 15 represents Hispanic Heritage Month and we at Harris County Public Library invite you to join us in celebrating the contributions people of Hispanic descent have made and continue to make in all facets of cultural and civic life in this great big mosaic of a county we all call home. HCPL will host programs for every age group that will entertain and inform. Scheduled events include movies, crafts,   dance demonstrations, a presentation on Latino history and literature, and--because we take celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month--seriously, several branches will hold fiestas with music, crafts, food and more!

Below are just some of the great programs in store across the county for Hispanic Heritage Month. Check your branch's Events Calendar for more. All programs are free and open to the public.
