Mexico Week: Resources and Events

     To promote and expand the community’s awakening to all things Mexican, Boise State University, in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate of Boise, presents Mexico Week April 7-12.
     Mexico Week offers a weeklong examination of our neighbor to the south that will bring to light the complexity and richness of Mexico’s history, geography, politics, economics, businesses, foreign policies, arts and culture.
     The library's collections will certainly satiate any lingering curiosities after attending any of these events. Additionally, the library holds copies of books being discussed.
