Centro Library and Archives Inaugurates its New Home in El Barrio

Centro Library and Archives Inauguration More than 300 friends, supporters, elected officials, and community leaders from throughout the New York Tri-State area came out to celebrate the October 21 inauguration of Centro’s Library and Archives’ new home in East Harlem, the heart of the Puerto Rican diaspora.

“Our new home has everything we imagined we would have: a beautiful reading room where we honor our heritage, twenty-four/seven climate control led facilities that meet the rigorous preservation standards, and the most advanced technologies for our staff to continue their excellent work,” said Edwin Meléndez, Centro’s director. “And, our new home is in el Barrio, a place of great historical value and cultural heritage for the Puerto Rican community.”

Meléndez added, “We celebrate this new home with a renewed commitment to our historical preservation and educational mission.” Hunter College president Jennifer Raab welcomed attendees, who included Congressman José Serrano and State assemblyman Robert Rodríguez.

Pura Belpré: Storyteller
This documentary honors the life and legacy of Pura Belpré (circa 1899-1982), a multicultural educator and storyteller who wrote and reinterpreted Puerto Rican folk tales. As the first Puerto Rican and Latina librarian in the New York Public Library system, she was an ambassador of the library's work with the Puerto Rican community. She was the author of more than ten children's books and an innovator in the use of puppetry, art and crafts as educational tools to teach kids how to read, write and express themselves.
