El dia de los ninos

El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), known as Día, is a celebration of children, families, and reading that culminates every year on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of  literacy and reading fun for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

Día events support literacy and bridge cultures through bilingual storytimes, family literacy fairs, community events, and other programs that encourage family reading and increased understanding of other cultures. Idaho public and school libraries are encouraged to work with at least one local partner to host a Día event and work to reach out to families who might not be library users. Libraries that host events and complete a Día application by April 4, 2017 will receive books for participating families.  

Applications are no longer being accepted for this year.
