Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Get a head start on Asian Pacific American Heritage Month at your University Libraries.  Traditionally celebrated in May each year, the University of Toledo got started a little early so that we could celebrate the heritage of people of Asian or Pacific Island ancestry before the end of the semester.  Stop by the exhibit table in Carlson Library to see what books and DVDs we have that explore the cultures of both the largest and smallest continents and the islands of the largest ocean, as well as the experiences of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.
