Smyrna Public Library Celebrates Día

Smyrna Public Library Celebrated Día (el día de los niños/el día de los libros) today.  The activities included stories, crafts, and games for children of all ages. This program was for English and non-English speakers with stories in Spanish and French. Every child in attendance today received a free book.

El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a celebration every day of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

This program was sponsored in part by a Dia Family Book Club Grant from the Dollar General Foundation and the Association for Library Service to Children.
