MORE: The Latino Collection was established in 1996 to bring together the voices of Hispanics and Latinos. It was envisioned as a cultural and educational resource which would chronicle and celebrate the literature, heritage, and contemporary life of Latinos in the United States.
Today, we celebrate the relocation and expansion of the Latino Collection into the Latino Collection and Resource Center. As part of the Library’s ongoing efforts to facilitate access to informational
resources and enlightening experiences, the collection was relocated to an expanded and more accessible space on the first floor of the Central Library.
