The annual Latin American Library open house and book sale will take place on Friday, September 25th, from 12:30 to 3:30. This is the LAL‘€™s yearly event to greet new Latin Americanist faculty and students, welcome back old friends, have a book sale, meet the LAL staff, and see an exhibit of new acquisitions at the LAL. In addition, this year, to celebrate the return of our special collections to the building, there will be a special exhibit in tandem with the Open House.

In conjunction with the open house, the library will have a special exhibit for visitors to enjoy starting on Friday through mid-December. ‘€œThe Latin American Library, A Retrospective: 90 Years of Engagement,‘€ includes original Mexican painted manuscripts or codices, mostly from the 16th century; original letters of Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes; original design drawings by renowned silver jewelry artist William Spratling; and original photographs and documents relating to Panamanian history and construction of the Panama Canal.
