Celebrating Dia de los Niños/Dia de los Libros

Children’s Day/Book Day is back at San Diego County Library! Día, for short, brings families and books together to celebrate literacy and children throughout April 2024. Check out SDCL’S program calendar and plan to join the fun at any of our 33 branch locations.

Día de los Niños is a Mexican holiday that recognizes and celebrates the influence of children in society. It's grown throughout Latin America.

In 1997, New Mexico celebrated Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children's Day/Book Day). The event honored children and promoted literacy through celebrations of language, culture, and books.

This celebration has been observed by SDCL for more than 20 years. 

Visit us this Children's Day/Book Day for a variety of events, filled with stories, crafts, dance, music, games, food, and free books for kids and teens. Story Trails will also take place at county parks and libraries; see our selected locations. Take the opportunity to engage with your library and community, and access information and entertainment with your library card. Visit our calendar to see what your closest SDCL branch will be hosting. Everyone is welcome!
