Hispanic Heritage Month!
During Hispanic Heritage Month and throughout the year, we encourage you to celebrate and learn more about the important histories, rich cultures, and valuable accomplishments of Hispanic and Latinx Americans, past and present. Between now and November 1, pick up a Hispanic Heritage passport at the Library (or print a copy from home by clicking the icon to the right), attend the local events and participate in the activities listed, and return your passport to the Library by November 5 for a chance to win a prize! This program is sponsored by the Lake Oswego Public Library, Respond to Racism, LO for Love, and the LO School District.
Come to the new Lakeridge Junior High School to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) with Spanish teachers Teresa Sánchez and Julie Pacheco-Toye in 3 evenings full of fun and cultural learning.
