Children’s Day/Book Day is Coming Soon!

Children’s Day, Book Day or as it is commonly known Día (El día de los niños, El día de los libros) is celebrated on April 30th of every year! Día was started by author, Pat Mora as a way to celebrate children and the love of reading.

It’s easy to celebrate Día in a library or at home by sharing books with loved ones- parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, even a favorite pet!

Looking for more ideas?

If you celebrate at your library this year, make sure you register your program here.

And check out the PSA’s created for Día that have been shown nationally and were filmed here in New Mexico, even featuring one of our public libraries- Santa Clara Pueblo Community Library which can be found on our website.
