Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 through October 15 and recognizes the achievements and contributions of Hispanic Americans to history, culture, and society.

Hispanic Heritage Month began as Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968, but the observance was expanded into a month-long celebration in 1988 by the U.S. Congress.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, several Latin American countries celebrate the anniversary of their independence, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua on September 15, Mexico on September 16, and Chile on September 18.

Throughout the month and all year long, learn something new about the achievements of Hispanic Americans and the events that shaped history through our library resources.
