April means Día!

April is here, so that means Día’s big day is only a few weeks away! How will you celebrate Día this year? On and around April 30, libraries, schools and communities will host families to celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day). If you need resources and ideas for your event, ALSC has you covered! Visit the Free Program Downloads page to download booklists, event posters and sample activities. Also, add your event to the National Día Program Registry to attract more participants!

Visit author Pat Mora's website for many more ideas including the newly updated Children’s Day, Book Day Planning Booklet. There, you will find a planning checklist and information about potential funding sources. Share news about how you're celebrating Día by using the hashtag #diatogether.
