Bilingual Library & Cultural Memory Archive

About

La Casita houses a bilingual library to serve as an interactive space where local residents, students, and scholars can discover the richness and diversity of U.S. Latino and Latin American literatures and cultures.

The library was designed and built by Syracuse University students from the Society of Multicultural Architects and Designers in SU’s School of Architecture.

For students in Library Sciences and in the Cultural Heritage Preservation Certificate Program (SU’s School of Information Studies) this is a great opportunity to acquire library experience.

 

Oral History Series

Open forums where local community members share their stories and discuss issues of relevance to them following prompts and interviews designed by journalistic and social sciences programs at Syracuse University. Scheduled interviews and occasional open mic sessions are recorded on video to be preserved in La Casita’s Library as part of its cultural memory archive.
