Celebrating Día in Riverside County

Thank you to today's guest blogger Maggie Gutierrez, Latino Outreach Coordinator at Riverside County Library System (CA.) 

Throughout the month of April, Riverside County Library System will present it's ninth annual celebration of Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Day of the child/Day of the book), a series of special events honoring books, libraries, and reading for children. All of our libraries will offer a variety of programming for children and adults, including author appearances, bilingual story times, crafts, games, and music. We enjoy bringing a joyful experience to our children and their families by incorporating the importance of literacy to each and everyone of our libraries. this year we have two award winning bilingual children's authors visiting seven of our libraries Renê Colato Lainez and Amy Costales.

Fun Fun month for everyone in April, include Mariachi Magic Show, Ballet Folklorico, multicultural theme story times, face painting of your favorite book character, book give aways, bilingual entertainers, food/refreshments, reading hint tools/skills to parents on how to motivate their children to read, and much much more!

Author Amy Costales and friends
