Día/Children's Day

Every April, the Library hosts a day or week of events to acknowledge the year-round commitment to literacy and family inspired by El día de los niños/El día de los libros. Día is a celebration promoting literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. 

Also known as Children's Day, Book Day, this initiative was started in 1997 by author Pat Mora, and is observed nationally by the American Library Association, and libraries across the country.
