Videos to Share
We encourage libraries, schools, universities, literacy organizations, and all who wish to promote Día to share these videos on social media, showcase them on your website, and share them with patrons, students and families. The spots were created by Día Dynamos Christy Vasquez, a retired librarian and Thom Eberhardt, a retired screenwriter. As Sky City Productions, they created and filmed these spots to assist in promoting Día nationally. How generous of them to donate their creative talents for all of us to share!

Please note:
The above videos are meant for use with websites and presentations. They are not broadcast standard.

How to share these videos: Click the central arrow to start playing the video, and then click on the YouTube video in the lower right. The video will open up on our YouTube channel. Beneath the video, you can:
  • Click "Share" to get a direct link you can copy and paste into an email or web page.
  • Click "Embed" to copy code that you can paste into a website that will embed the video on that site (like we have done on this page.)
  • Click "Email" to have YouTube send the video to your recipient(s).

ALSC invited Pat to record these Día Public Service Announcements. We hope you'll share them to encourage families to participate in your Día celebrations! These are downloadable, broadcast-quality audio mp3 files. To download, right-click on the PSA, select "save link as," choose computer file location and click "save."
