Celebrate Hispanic and Latinx culture year-round!

You don't have to wait for Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate Hispanic and Latinx cultures. Infuse diverse stories, experiences and perspectives into your curriculum whenever you can.

Representation matters.

Look for winners of the Pura Belpré Award, awarded by the Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC). Named after the first Latina librarian who worked for the New York Public Library, this award "is presented annually to a Latino/Latina writer and illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms, and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth."
