Happy Día Day!

April 30th is nationally recognized as El día de los niños / El día de los libros (Children's Day / Book Day) or simply called, Día Day. Día is a year-long celebration of children and reading, with a goal of promoting the importance of children’s literacy for all, regardless of background. April 30th, 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of Día, spearheaded by poet Pat Mora after realizing that the United States did not have any holiday to celebrate literacy and bilingualism.

The goals of Día programming are to:

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

  • Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.

  • Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.

  • Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.

How to Celebrate

In libraries all over the country, librarians, children, and parents celebrate Día year-round with book clubs, bilingual storytimes, guest appearances by children’s authors, crafts, music, and more. On the official Día website, librarians and parents have access to book suggestions, tool kits, a resource guide, worksheets, and more great resources to help their Día celebration. Every year more and more libraries celebrate Día; visit your local library to find out about their celebration!
