Curated by Carrie Puglisi with Ingrid Betancourt

40 Years: The Story of La Casa de Don Pedro documents the first 40 years of one of Newark's leading comprehensive social service and community development organizations and its role in the history of the City of Newark. The exhibit follows the transformation of La Casa from a grassroots Puerto Rican community organization focused on child development and advocacy, to a multidimensional institution serving multiethnic constituencies in North Newark and throughout Greater Newark.

La Casa de Don Pedro has been working with and serving residents of Greater Newark since 1972. Programs promote family wellbeing, healthy child development, educational achievement, employment opportunities, homeownership, financial self-sufficiency, energy conservation, and neighborhood renewal.

The exhibition is open during regular library hours, Monday through Saturday, with free admission. The Newark Public Library is located at 5 Washington Street on Washington Park in downtown Newark’s growing cultural complex.

Group visits and more details are readily available by calling the SalaHispanoamericana at the Library: 973–733–7772.
