Pura Belpré: A Puerto Rican Librarian in 1920s NYC

Gladys Jiménez-Muñoz, professor of sociology and Latin American & Caribbean Area Studies, will give a talk about Pura Belpré, the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City. Belpré began her career in 1921 at the New York Public Library (NYP) and pioneered NYP’s outreach within the Puerto Rican community.

The talk is in conjunction with our Reading Puerto Rico exhibit currently on view in the lobby of Bartle Library.  Refreshments will be served.

Registration is encouraged.
