    Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with SJPL Hispanic Heritage Month is upon us once again at San José Public Library. If you aren’t familiar with this annual time of reflection and tribute to the Hispanic/Latin culture, it would be worthwhile to plan a visit to one of our libraries to experience the symbolism behind Hispanic/Latin culture and to understand some of the history and influence Hispanic/Latin culture had on the North and South American continents.

  • Celebrate National Dog Day!photo of happy dog in a pool

    August 26 is National Dog Day! This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety, service animals, aid in search and rescue, and much more. National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs already in our lives, and to rescue dogs. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
