“We want the Hispanic community to get to know the Library, and at the same time celebrate the great Hispanic heritage. This is a time designated specifically to welcome the Hispanic population to the Library," said Chris Swanson, talking about the purpose of the celebration day. Swanson is vice president of Hispanic Initiatives for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
