The US Library of Congress Hispanic Room 1939

The Hispanic Room at the US Library of Congress in Washington, DC opened on October 12, 1939.  The Room was named for the Hispanic Society of New York.  It is the focal point for the extensive resources of Luso-Hispanic materials throughout the Library of Congress.  The Room is open to the public, so please stop by for a visit and see your taxpayer’s dollars at work at www.LOC.gov.  The Library of Congress also offers an amazing collection of Hispanic / Latino Exhibits and Digital Collections.  Great resource for your homework during Latinx / Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15).
