Celebrate and Honor the Memory of a Loved One
CSUN University Library invites you to participate in Día de los Muertos celebration. We will have a community altar, where we share ofrenda, offerings, and come together to recognize and honor the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.
If you would you like to add a picture of your loved one, you can email a digital image to firstname.lastname@example.org - we will print it and add it to the ofrenda. Or bring a print photograph to the RIOS office on the Library main floor. We also welcome you to add a note.
If you have lost a loved one to COVID-19, please share a memory in our archive of this time. Documenting Covid-19 @CSUN.
