Have you already started planning for your big Día Turns 20 Celebration? April 30 of 2016 marks 20 years of the celebration of Día as the connection of children and books, so the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has a funding opportunity to make the celebration even bigger!
To launch the yearlong celebration of Día turning 20, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has awarded ten Building STEAM with Día mini-grants to help libraries implement a Building STEAM with Día program in their community.
The Building STEAM with Día Toolkit, made possible by a generous donation to the Association for Library Service to Children from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, provides a research-based overview of the importance of intentionally planning for the inclusion of diverse content and community partners in STEAM programming. The toolkit also includes easy-to-follow sample programs and tips to get started with a Día STEAM program. As we near the 20th year of the celebration of Día, we would love for your library to kick off your Día year by thinking about Building STEAM with Día!
