El día de los niños/El día de los libros
(Children’s Day/Book Day)
Sat April 28th @ 10:30am at the Central Library
Often referred to as “Día,” this event is a celebration of children, families, literacy and libraries. Its goals are to honor children, languages and cultures, to encourage reading and literacy, and to promote library collections and programs that reflect our diverse community.
Join us Saturday, April 28th from 10:30am – 12:15pm for Mariachi music, storytime, arts and crafts, library tours and more! We would like to thank CVS, Deckers, Marborg Industries and Santa Cruz Market for supporting our event.
The Santa Barbara Public Library was named one of three winners of the 2010 Estela and Raúl Mora award for exemplary coordination of the Día de los Niños festival. The award was established by author and poet Pat Mora and her siblings in honor of their parents.
