On April 30, hundreds of libraries across the country will celebrate Día (El día de los niños / El día de los libros / Children’s Day / Book Day), a national library program that fosters literacy for all children from all backgrounds by connecting children and families to diverse books, stories, and other library resources. This year’s Día celebrations will consist of multicultural events that honor and embrace a child’s home language, heritage, and culture. Programming includes story hours featuring a variety of languages, book giveaways, and a host of other fun activities for families.
