National Hispanic Heritage Month Recap

National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and our partners, share history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present.


Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from September 15 – October 15, and this year White Oak Library District went all out with programs, displays, and a video on RVTV – Romeoville’s public access television station. Scroll down for a recap of all we offered.
