Library books

Concordia University Ann Arbor's Zimmerman Library has put together a list of eBooks you can read to recognize and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!

Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15)

What is Hispanic Heritage Month?

Take advantage of access to over 150,000 electronic book titles from the Zimmerman Library to learn about Hispanic Heritage Month!

“Our goal at Concordia University Ann Arbor is to establish a long-standing tradition of celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month in September and October to honor the history, politics, and culture of Hispanic people both locally and globally,” said Shanitra Cheff, director of CUAA’s office of multicultural engagement.

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15), Librarian Liz Hartig worked with Cheff to do a round up of 10 eBooks to read in recognition of Hispanic heritage. There are more events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in the works.

Not only do CUAA students have free access to all of these eBooks, some eBooks are also used as textbooks in CUAA’s courses, providing a convenient, cost-saving option. Click here to browse the entire eBook database.
