On Tuesday, April 30, the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) will join hundreds of libraries across the nation in celebration of El Día de los Niños (Children’s Day). The Forks Branch Library celebration will be held from 4-5pm and feature games, music, treats, and lots of fun! Children who attend will receive a free book in honor of the holiday.
Día, is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. Día is also known as El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day). Día happens year-round, since sharing good books with children should take place every day, but on April 30, libraries, community partners, and families have extra special celebrations to mark the year. NOLS has a wide range of books for all ages available in Spanish. In addition, patrons may request books in other languages from libraries around the country through the interlibrary loan service.
