Celebrate Día with Stories and Music

Join Chicago Public Library in celebrating children, books and family for DíaEl día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day)!  

The 25th anniversary of Día in the United States is on April 30. CPL is hosting a week of virtual Día events from Monday, April 26 to Friday, April 30 to celebrate, featuring story times in English and Spanish so we can celebrate all the books!

Don't miss our special event at the end of the week: a virtual celebration on Saturday, May 1 including a bilingual concert from musicians Little Parade at 11 a.m. on Facebook and a storytelling event with author Carmen Agra Deedy at 2 p.m.

Día is a special event inspired by the traditional holiday el día de los niños/Children’s Day that many Latin American countries celebrate. Learn more about Día, plus try some fun activities suggested by blogger Cristina. Or find some great Día reads in English and Spanish.
