Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month takes place annually from September 15 through October 15, to recognize the achievements and contributions made by Hispanic-American champions who have inspired others to achieve success. The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under then President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded in 1988 under President Ronald Reagan to become a month-long celebration. It was enacted into law on August 17,1988. Even though the month-long celebration of the rich history is soon ending, you can continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage heroes with these titles from the St. Tammany Parish Library. You can  learn a new language, learn to cook a new recipe or armchair travel to your favorite Hispanic getaway to experience a taste of the Hispanic Heritage. You can also listen to some new music from a Hispanic musician. Be sure to read about your favorite Hispanic role model at your local library. These are just a few of our offerings. You can explore the library's full collection to find more.
