Library marks Hispanic Heritage Month

The Atlantic City Free Public Library will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by offering a concert as part of its Fun Day Sunday program schedule.

The concert and all Fun Day Sunday programs are free. Space is limited for the crafts programs, so those interested in attending are encouraged to register by calling 609-345-2269, ext. 3050.
