The Palm Beach County Library System is having its third, fan-based DeweyCon for lovers of all things pop culture, television, film and animation. Activities are being organized throughout the System during the week leading up to Sat, Sep 24. The main event will take place at the Main Library on Sat, Sep 24, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. Our goal is to make this free event as inclusive, diverse, relevant, entertaining and educational as possible. We strive for an outcome that conveys the Library as a safe space for those with interests outside of the mainstream. Our aim is to create an environment of trust where people with alternative and varied interests can truly fit in. Sponsored, in part, by the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System.

We celebrate our community’s cultural diversity, the beautiful traditions of Latin American countries, and the contributions Hispanics have made to American society. The national commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month began with a weeklong observance, started in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson. Twenty years later, President Ronald Reagan expanded the observation to September 15 - October 15, a month-long period that includes several Latin American countries’ anniversaries of independence.

STEM kits encourage children to develop an interest and skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These kits offer families the chance to continue hands-on exploration of STEM topics at home. They include books, DVDs, games and other interactive materials to explore basic concepts in STEM, and they are free to check out with your Palm Beach County Library System card!
