September 15th is the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month. National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the people, history, culture and influence of Hispanic and Latino American citizens on the U.S. With ancestors who came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America, Hispanic Americans contribute to our nation and economy in many ways, from our government and military, to small business, industry, arts, music, food and education. The Fountaindale Public Library is proud to present this month’s lobby tree display in dedication to National Hispanic Heritage with a plethora of books to choose from as well as a smattering of DVDs and CDs that take a look at all aspects of this unique and wonderful culture. …And, it’s all conveniently located for you on the 1st Floor, right when you first walk in!
