Hispanic Heritage Month with the Pearl Peanuts

Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15-October 15. According to the United States Census Bureau, more than 35 million people are of Hispanic Heritage. For the month of September, the Pearl Peanuts of the Pearl Public Library have been celebrating and learning about Hispanic heritage. We have learned various Spanish words including a song "Hola Amigo", played "Bash the Piñata", and created mini-piñatas. This week we will make tortilla chips and either dust them with cinammon and sugar or eat them with salsa. The children will also decorate a tortilla chip recipe page for their cookbooks.

Join us on Wednesdays at 4:00 for the Pearl Peanuts Story Time. The program usually lasts from 45-60 minutes and is designed for elementary age children. Email Mara for more information.

  1. This looks like such a good time! I love pinatas! :) I love that Hispanic Heritage month is able to bring Hispanics together in celebration of their accomplishments in the community.

    One Hispanic that has done extensive work in the community in both journalism and broadcast is Cristina Saralegui. She's an amazing Hispanic and has such great accomplishments! She actually just teamed up with AARP to help spread the word to other Hispanics how beneficial a membership with AARP is and how it can improve the lives of Hispanics.
