St. Louis County Library reaches out to Latino residents

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

The St. Louis County Library\’s Rock Road branch will launch a new film series tonight with a free showing of \”Harry Potter y la Piedra de Mago.\”

No, it\’s not a Harry Potter prequel or a book your kids forgot to tell you about. Instead, the Spanish-dubbed version of \”Harry Potter and the Sorcerer\’s Stone\” is the first step in the library\’s attempt to better serve the metropolitan area\’s growing Hispanic population . . .

\”The Spanish-speaking population is currently underserved,\” said Eric Button, who managed the Rock Road branch before moving to the Daniel Boone branch in Ellisville on Jan. 1. \”We\’re trying to change that. This hopefully will be just the beginning.\”
