Reception will celebrate exhibition of Latino stories, photos

Stories and photographs of more than 50 Holland area Latino residents will be displayed at the Herrick District Library on Feb. 28.


A reception to celebrate the collection will begin at 6 p.m. at the library, 300 S. River Ave. Holland. It is free and open to the public.


Nuestra Comunidad Hispana was a collaborative partnership among Latin Americans United for Progress, Herrick District Library, Grand Valley State University’s Kutsche Office of Local History, GVSU Meijer Campus in Holland, City of Holland, and Holland Museum.


Kimberly McKee, director of the Kutsche Office of Local History, said this is the second story collection of Latino residents. This year’s exhibit was funded by a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council to LAUP.


Stories and photographs collected through this project will be available permanently in the genealogy section of the library.
