Día de los Ninos is now an ICfL Micro-Grant!~

Application is open January 14 – February 1st

Since 2005, ICfL has been supporting Día de los Ninos – originally a Mexican celebration for children/the day of the child. Today, with this event, we continue to celebrate children as well as emphasize the importance of daily family reading.

One big change for this year…we will be using our program budget to offer support for 12 libraries to offer Día events with $400 micro-grants.

Program goals:

·         Celebrate children, family and reading and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.

·         Reach underserved children and families who are English Language Learners (ELL) and ensure they have access to library resources and/or cards.

·         Celebrate and honor a child’s home language, culture and heritage.

Idaho Public and school libraries may apply. This is a competitive grant process.

Please review all the information and grant details on the Día web page.
