Visit Durham County Library for the annual Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Day of the Children/Day of the Books) Celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, May 2nd. A range of free, family-friendly events are planned at six library locations.
Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros is a celebration based on childhood and literacy that began in 1997. Borrowing from the traditional Mexican holiday “El día de los niños,” the U.S. version expanded to include literacy when author Pat Mora took up the cause. Congress officially designated April 30th as “Day of the Child” in 1998.
Activities at Durham county Library locations will include crafts, storytimes, tours, visits with community organizations and more!
