Día is a daily commitment to link children and books. Every year, hundreds of April culminating book fiestas are held across the country in libraries, schools, parks, and community organizations. The goal for these events is: Creating April Día literacy celebrations that unite communities. Register your Día events in the National Program Registry, a database for capturing and sharing program information. This registry is not limited to Día programs at libraries.
