Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

What do comedienne Margaret Cho, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, cabinet member Norman Mineta, golfer Tiger Woods, and Yahoo! co-founder Jerry Yang have in common?

Each of these well-known public figures is part of the vast, diverse group of Americans who claim either full or partial Asian heritage. May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and the library has plenty of materials for those interested in learning more about the history and impact of Asian Americans.

Here are a few highlights from the collection:
