Join Us In Celebrating Day of the Dead

Have You Lost Someone You Loved?

Our Day of the Dead: Recycled Art exhibit at Central Library now includes a place to honor your friends and relative who have passed away.

You are invited to add you own small photo or memento to the altar:

Day of the Dead Altar

The Day of of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico and many other cultures on All Saints Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2), as a time to celebrate and honor the lives of our departed friends and relatives.

The Library’s traditional Day of the Dead alter is on the 2nd floor at Central Library, and will remain up (for a longer-than-traditional time) until Nov. 30.
