This annual fest has featured authors and artists for presentations, interactive activities, food, music and much more!

A traditional dance group recently performed at the Heights Library in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. The performance was a apart of The Living Room which is a library program that promotes unity and celebrates diversity. Meet your neighbors over coffee, tea and food from all over the world. Share your stories and learn the traditions of other cultures. The Living Room is an example of what makes Houston home to the most diverse population in the nation.

In addition to the Living Room, the celebration continued at the Central Library with Libro Fest. This lively event featured a live mariachi band, and books from Hispanic authors. Children were excited to decorate balloons, make bookmarks and created colorful paper flowers.

This event embodies the rich Hispanic culture and displays the diversity of Houston. This is what makes our city great!
