Paul Lefrak is the kind of librarian who makes me proud of this profession.

Tonight at the Library of Congress ...the Library will present three more events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month:

A poetry reading, “Red Hot Salsa,� at noon, Thursday, Sept. 29, in the Mary Pickford Theater
on the third floor of the James Madison Building.

A film presentation of “Motorcycle Diaries,� from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 4, in the
Mary Pickford Theater.

A presentation by Latin guitarists Duo América and the Library of Congress Ballroom Dance Club from noon to 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 13, in the Mumford Room on the sixth floor of the James Madison Building.

Paul Lefrak is a fantastic librarian in addition to being a great community activist. I'm proud to have him as a colleague.
