Hispanic Heritage Read-in Set for October 9

The public is invited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at Lincoln City Libraries with a Read-In at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 9 at Walt Branch Library, 6701 S. 14th Street. Lincoln residents from a variety of Hispanic backgrounds are volunteering to share part of their culture by reading stories and poems.

The observance of Hispanic Heritage Week started in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover the period from September 15 through October 15. The observance celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
