It’s National Library Week!

It’s National  Library Week! We salute Día’s national home, the Association of Library Service for Children (ALSC), a Division of the American Library Association.

Register Now for Complimentary Día Brochures!

Celebrate! Celebremos! Join colleagues across the country as libraries nationwide celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day). Held annually on April 30, Día promotes the importance of advocating literacy for every child, regardless of linguistic and cultural background. Through Día celebrations, libraries showcase their multicultural programs and services. While supplies last, ALSC is providing up to 100 complimentary bilingual brochures, with recommended book lists and tips on how to encourage children to read, to each library that registers its Día event at: www.ala.org/dia. The registry of events is searchable by state.

The Association of Library Service for Children (ALSC) has been Día’s national home since 2004. The division is proud to include Día as one of its four major initiatives, all programs devoted to promoting literacy and library use to children, families and caregivers. ALSC’s Public Awareness Committee, whose members are responsible for Día, is looking forward to the upcoming 15th anniversary celebration next year. Great plans are underway for the commemoration. This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Communities thrive @ your library” and we want to build a thriving Día community.

Please feel free to contact us at dia@ala.org.

Thanks to our guest blogger, Linda Mays, ALSC Program Officer.
