2017 Rhode Island Latino Books Month (Books Selection)



Calling all Book Lovers!! One of our CORI members Maria Cotto, a Bilingual Children’s Librarian at the Pawtucket Public Library needs our help in putting together a book-list for grades K through 12 that promotes books by and for Latinos. If you can, please do email her any books that you have come across that are by a Latino/a author for children or teens in the past year or two (2016-2017). Any suggestions that you can provide would be greatly appreciated and helpful in putting together an exciting booklist for this year’s 2017 Latino Books Month celebration. 

If you have any questions, please email Maria at mcotto@pawtucketlibrary.org 

Here is a link to learn more about Latino Books Month:

Thank you in advance.
