Hot El Salvador

Alexandria Campus Library celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with a Hot Topics display of books about El Salvador.

The National Education Association says of National Hispanic Heritage Month:

"National Hispanic Heritage MonthSeptember 15 - October 15
Observed each year from September 15-October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens who trace their ancestry to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Spanish-speaking countries of Central and South America.
Contrary to popular belief, the word Hispanic does not refer to race, but is an ethnic term for diverse peoples of many races and origins who hold in common the Spanish language."

To see more exciting displays, exhibits and events, visit the Library of Congress.
