Día de Muertos

El Día de Muertos es considerado la tradición más representativa de la cultura mexicana. La celebración se lleva a cabo en dos días: el 1 de noviembre es dedicado al alma de los niños y el 2 de noviembre a la de los adultos.
El origen del Día de Muertos tiene sus raíces en el sincretismo de las culturas prehispánica y europea, de las cuales se enriquecieron los ritos y las ceremonias que se realizan alrededor de esta festividad.

Exploring Insects - On Display Through September
Insects and their relatives are found just about everywhere.  Today, many legislators, environmentalists, organizations, naturalists and teachers are involved in a race to protect natural history, including the unique ecosystems of our world. 

Entomology is a really complex science. The science requires strong backgrounds in biology, physiology, chemistry and mathematics. Work with insects also requires tolerances for conditions and subjects that are unusual, or which may be harmful. Insects, because of their diversity, abundance and articulation into every habitat and niche are vitally important to understand and record.

Come in to see this wonderful collection on the 2nd floor of the Library!
