May 2010 Exhibit – Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

The first WCC Library book exhibit for May 2010 celebrates Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, with its theme of “Leadership to Meet the Challenge of a Changing World.”  Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month was first observed in May of 1990 when George H.W. Bush officially declared Asian-Pacific Heritage Week to be expanded to a month-long celebration.  To find out more about the Asian-Pacific cultures and their heritage, visit the Library of Congress’s Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month website, as well as Duke University’s Asian Pacific Studies Institute, providing links to both the Insitute’s library resources and the North Carolina Japan Center.
