Día de los Ninos is now an ICfL Micro-Grant!
El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), often known as Día, is a celebration of children, families, and reading that culminates every year on April 30. Celebrated since 1925 throughout Mexico, Día emphasizes the importance of literacy and reading fun for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds through bilingual storytimes, family literacy fairs, community events, and other programs that encourage family reading and increased understanding of other cultures.
This year, ICfL is trying something new…
We’re utilizing our program funds to award 12 Idaho public and/or school libraries each a $400 micro-grant to implement a Día event in their community.
Program Planning Resources
The following program resources are available to any Idaho public or school library to plan a Dia event, regardless of whether the library was awarded a Dia Micro-Grant:
