Alexandria Library hosting musical and literary events for Hispanic Heritage Month

From tango to storytime, the Alexandria Library is hosting an array of events this month to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

The month of programming started on Sept. 15 and will run until Monday, Oct. 16.

There will be a bilingual storytime on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 10:15 a.m. in the Burke Branch Library (4701 Seminary Road). The event is aimed at children who are one or two years old.

There are storytime events throughout the month, including ones for older children and a book club for adults. There will be a screening of Encanto, one of the best Disney movies in recent memory, at the Duncan Branch Library (2501 Commonwealth Avenue) on Wednesday, Oct. 4 from 4-6 p.m.

There are also multiple dances and dance classes, including a Tango class on Tuesday, Sept. 26 from 4-5 p.m. in the Burke Branch Library.
