A Cinco de Mayo event will be held at the Bend Library from 2:30-5 on Saturday, May 5, 2007. Included in this event will be music and Edgar Sanchez performing a traditional dance called La Danza del Viejito.

Light refreshments will be served. For additional information, contact Jo Caisse at 312.1036.
Deschutes Public Library was awarded a Library Services and Technology Act grant from Oregon State Library to plan for library services to meet the library needs of the growing Latino community in Deschutes County. We are looking for feedback about future library service from the Latino community and have planned several cultural events in order to solicit feedback.
