May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In recognition of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month we have a display of interesting books in glass cases near the the first floor elevators. This month honors all Americans with roots in Asia and the Pacific island groups of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. Americans from the diverse cultures of a vast area of the world are included in this month of celebration. The area stretches from Pakistan to Hawaii and from New Zealand to Korea.

For more information check out the official website:

If you would like to read any of the books in the cases, they will be available when the exhibit is taken down at the end of May.
