Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at the San Antonio Public Library
SAN ANTONIO (September 15, 2015) — The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) makes rich cultural resources available to all, and provides opportunities for the community to meet and exchange ideas. As a community gathering place and setting for engaging discussion, SAPL celebrates the cultural diversity of San Antonio with Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15.)
During National Hispanic Heritage Month, SAPL recognizes the achievements and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the American story. Celebrate Hispanic heritage and culture through a variety of special events and programs at various branch locations.

This year, the San Antonio Public Library has been awarded a competitive Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association. As part of the grant, the Library will provide public programming – such as public film screenings, discussion groups, oral history initiatives, local history exhibitions, multi-media projects or performances – about Latino history and culture. The library will also screen episodes of the six-part documentary film “Latino Americans,” created for PBS. The award-winning series chronicles the history of Latinos in the United States from the 16th century to present day.
