Hispanic Day of the Dead Celebrated at Downtown Library


Dia de los Muertes—Day of the Dead—is one of the most significant Hispanic holidays, and this year it will be celebrated at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, with a three-part series of programs November 1-3.

“Dia de los Muertes, November 1, is the day in Hispanic culture when the dead are more than remembered,” said Downtown Library Manager Angela Thornton, “they are honored.  We are honoring the culture with music, stories, and art crafts.  It’s all free and everyone is welcome, but space is limited so please give us a call at
231-8650 to sign up.”
