Start a Book Club

The Día Family Book Club is a reading program that engages children and families in the shared reading and discussion of contemporary children’s literature that reflects our common plurality. Through shared discussion and reflection, families will explore themes and issues that matter and learn how to better help their child to both enjoy and better understand literature. Additionally, the Día Family Book Club provides families with opportunities to learn together and collaborate in their children’s learning and reading development. Together they will employ useful strategies for reading and analyzing stories, learning new vocabulary and comprehension skills and develop and nurture the habits and practices of critical thinking. 

The Día Book Club also provides families with opportunities to discover the world of knowledge and information at the public library.  They can apply for library cards, check out books and learn about the multiplicity of services and programs available at the public library.
