Listen Online: San Antonio Central Library Collection Preserves Latino Literary Culture
From Texas Public Radio:
What began as a petition calling for more Hispanic and Latino representation in the mid-90s is now a full-service resource center in a prominent space in San Antonio’s iconic Central Library.
Previously housed in a cramped section on Central Library’s sixth floor, the collection was recently moved to a prominent area on the first floor. The 6,000-square-foot expansion was built using almost $500,000 of privately funded donations and contributions from the City of San Antonio, and includes a writer’s workshop, study areas, an art gallery and space for lectures and community events.
