NM State Library is encouraging all libraries to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Día de los libros, a celebration of reading created by children’s author Pat Mora. It can be as simple as encouraging your patrons to spend some time on April 30th reading to someone special: a parent, a friend, a family member, a beloved pet, their favorite librarian! Or if you’re feeling more ambitious ALSC is encouraging librarians to apply for a mini-grant to help with the costs of a program. Good luck and please send me any photos of any Día celebrations happening around the state!
There have also been 3 Día PSA’s created (all filmed in NM!) and you are free to share them or use them as you wish! I know that there are plans to film at least one more this year and the filmmakers hope to add more every year! Those links are:
