  • Centro Library Expands
    Historic La Prensa Collection
    With New Microfilm Acquisition

    Newspaper articles from 1917 are of special interest to Centro, as this was the year that marked a milestone in the story of Puerto Ricans and their relationship with the United States. It was the year when U.S. citizenship was granted to Puerto Ricans. The Spanish-language newspaper La Prensa was there to cover this major news event.

    Centro Library and Archives has long contained La Prensa microfilms, but we recently acquired 12 additional microfilms containing newspaper issues from that historic year of 1917 through 1921.This new acquisition adds more depth to Centro Library’s already rich La Prensa collection.

  • “Boricua Imprint” Poster Exhibit
    Celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage

    Every year Comité Noviembre (CN) celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage Month throughout November with a host of cultural, artistic and educational activities that bring awareness of the contributions of Puerto Ricans in the United States. As a gift, attendees get the special CN poster for that year, autographed by an artist and inspired by a specific theme that speaks to the heart of the Puerto Rican people.

    Many of these posters are currently on display at the “Boricua Imprint” graphics exhibition at Taller Boricua at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center, 1680 Lexington Ave. in East Harlem. The poster exhibit, which began in 2011 to commemorate CN’s 25th anniversary, has grown in popularity.
