Celebrate literacy and diversity with the Alameda Free Library. We're having a multicultural and bilingual event to celebrate El Dia de los Ninos/ El Dia de los Libros or Children's Day / Book Day! There will be crafts, snacks and a bilingual interactive puppet show from the fabulous Magical Moonshine Theatre! Join us in celebrating diversity with Dia!
What is Dia?
Dia is a celebration of literacy and diversity. A nationally reknowned initiative emphasizing the importance of literacy for all children from all languages and cultures.
The common goals of all Día programming are to:
- Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.
- Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.
- Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.
- Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.
