Portuguese Heritage Collection Endowment

Portuguese Heritage Collection Endowment

The endowment honors the Portuguese community in San Jose, which began in the 1850s when Portuguese settlers arrived and built a strong community in the Santa Clara Valley. Established in partnership with the Portuguese American community, the endowment allows the King Library to enhance its holdings in all areas of Portuguese literature, art, history, and social studies and expands the library's Portuguese heritage collections through traditional print media, digital resources, and video/audio formats.
