Now Accepting Nominations for 2021 Latino Community Service Awards

The Denver Public Library is accepting nominations for its annual Latino Community Service Awards. The awards honor individuals who have made a deep and lasting impact in our community. Each year, the library honors Latino leaders with three awards named after Lena L. Archuleta, Eric J. Duran and César Chávez. Winners are selected by a committee of library commissioners, community members and library staff. 

Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Friday, July 30, 2021, and may be submitted online at denverlibrary.org/latino-awards, or sent via U.S. mail to: Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library, c/o Nadia Rendon, 1498 N. Irving Street, Denver, CO 80204

Award recipients will be notified in August. A community celebration will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at 11 a.m. at the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library. 

This event is part of the Denver Public Library’s celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month. This month-long celebration (September 15 - October 15), honors and celebrates the history, the many contributions, and the rich culture of Latinos.
