The Grand Rapids Public Library downtown branch is honoring Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday that honors family and friends who have passed on. Loved ones come together to build altars that celebrate the life and memory of the dead. This is a time of celebration and joy, filled with talk and memories of those who have died. Altars from members of the community honoring family and friends will be on display. Every altar is unique and taken together they create a fascinating portrait of what the citizens of Grand Rapids hold close to them.
