Jackson County 4-H and the Carbondale Public Library are celebrating Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month through a free workshop on September 24 from 10 a.m. - noon. Come design and paint your own amate painting during this event for youth ages 8-18. We will celebrate by making a visual art project, having a Latin snack, listening to a story by a Latinx author, and learning some cultural facts. 

The workshop is limited to 20 participants. Reserve your spot today by visiting or contact Becky Needham at
