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.
