Library celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month with free programs


COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) is celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month with free programs at many of its locations. Beginning today, Wednesday, Sept. 15, through Friday, Oct. 15, CML will help its customers recognize the impact Hispanic Americans have had on the central Ohio community.

National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latinx Americans and celebrates heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month, CML will share history, heritage and accomplishments of Hispanic Americans of past and present.

Columbus Metropolitan Library has served the people of Franklin County, Ohio since 1873. With its Main Library and 22 branches, CML is well known for signature services and programs like School Help, Reading Buddies, Summer Reading Challenge and Ready for Kindergarten. The library’s Strategic Plan supports the vision of “a thriving community where wisdom prevails,” which positions CML to respond to areas of urgent need: kids unprepared for kindergarten, third grade reading proficiency, high school graduation, college and career readiness and employment resources.
