Tell Your Story with Music: Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) falls every year between September 15th and October 15th. This year, the Tulsa City-County Library is celebrating HHM with fun family programming on the theme of "Tell Your Story with Music." The Hispanic Resource Center will offer programming for all ages to enjoy.

In the wake of the recent hurricanes, wildfires, and earthquakes, I’d like to donate to the recovery efforts. Where can I find information about reputable charities?

When donating money to a charity, you naturally want to choose organizations which will use their funds efficiently and effectively. You also want to avoid fake charities set up to take scam well-intentioned donors. The library has collected a list of resources you can use to investigate the legitimacy of organizations claiming to be charities, as well as how various nonprofit organizations spend the money they receive.
