It's true! The San Jose Public Library has teamed up with the Int'l Latino Film Society to bring you several inspiring and incredible films for the month of June.
The first showing was at Educational Park (the screening room was a short stroll from the library--we showed you where). Please read more information about our screening and the series here and here.
