The Pura Belpré Award, established in 1996, is presented annually to a Latino/Latina writer and illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth.

 


From author panels to presentations and performances by local talent, these programs spotlight the many dazzling facets of Latin American culture.

¡VIVA! at the Library is an annual celebration of Latino heritage, cultures and traditions. San Francisco has a rich Latino heritage that is highlighted in a diverse array of exciting programs for all ages, from Spanish storytimes to cooking classes, author talks to art and cultural presentations.
