Celebrate with us at our Hispanic Heritage Festival

Fiesta cartoonThe Purcell Public Library continues its longtime tradition of hosting its annual Hispanic Heritage Festival, with this year’s event taking place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at the library.

The event is a celebration of the Hispanic culture and will include a variety of family activities, including games, door prizes, music and bilingual story times. It’s also a chance to see the free language learning tools offered by the library.

Local food vendors will be in attendance with low-cost food items available for purchase as well.

And get the week started at the library with a Movie and Nachos night, at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17. The PG-rated movie is for all ages and attendees can enjoy a Nacho Bar.

The events commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month, which has been celebrated annually from September 15 to October 15 every year since 1988. The festival is sponsored by the Pioneer Library System, the City of Purcell, and the Friends of the Purcell Public Library.

All ages are invited, and no advance registration is required to attend.
