Celebrate Latino Hispanic Heritage Month at Excelsior Branch this fall

We have multiple fun programs for all ages lined up to celebrate Latino Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15.

We start out with a Mexican Chocolate Storytime on Saturday, September 21 at 11:30am. Learn about the ancient tradition of Mexican chocolate or cacahuatl with books, songs, rhymes and a special tasting to follow. This is for children of all ages and their families.

Continuing with a food theme, join us on Tuesday, October 8 at 7pm to learn about tamales,  watch a tamale making demonstration, make your own to take home and taste some freshly steamed tamales. This program is for everybody aged 5 and older. Space is limited to 25 people. First come, first served.

And last but not least we have a mural craft program for teens and tweens on Wednesday, October 9, 3:30-5pm. Join Precita Eyes Muralists in creating a chalk art mural. Come up with a theme for the mural and learn techniques for using chalk pastel. The mural will be displayed in the library once completed.

Also check out our branch displays of non-fiction books and novels with a Latino Hispanic Heritage theme as well as as slideshow of  historical images of Hispanic Americans in San Francisco on our digital display.
