Every year around this time, librarian Cecilia Puerto creates an altar in the Chicano Collection (Room LL126) to celebrate Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. And every year, people place such lovely, tender, and sometimes even amusing mementos on the altar as their way of remembering a deceased loved one. Here are a few photos of the 2010 altar. It’s going to be up through November 4. Perhaps there’s someone special you’d like to remember this year?
