April 30th is national Dia de los ninos/Dia de los libros also known as Children’s Day/Book Day.  Celebrating its 15th year, Dia de los libros annually emphasizes the importance of books in the lives of children.  In 1996, children’s author Pat Mora proposed linking Children’s Day (which began in 1925 and was designated as a day to bring attention to the importance and well-being of children) to children’s books.   The Association for Library Service to Children is the national home of Día and REFORMA The National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking is a founding partner.  For more information about the celebration visit the American Library Association’s page.
