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. What better way to celebrate this than reading bilingual books to children?
Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday celebrated on the fifth day of May each year.
You can't go out to celebrate this year, but you can celebrate at home! You can make maracas and a piñata using household items.
Are you interested in learning how to write? If so, you might be interested in the Grab the Mic initiative presented by Jason Reynolds at the Library of Congress. In this series, Jason Reynolds will talk to young people directly and present various activities to help build your creativity.
WOW! It was just last month at this time we were inundated with super heroes, princesses and every kind of storybook character. It was the bee’s knees, even the Very Hungry Caterpillar came to Lamond-Riggs Library!
All of the familiar storybook characters came to the library to celebrate Book-O-Ween. The teachers and children from nearby DC Bilingual perform this “car stopping” trick during the Halloween season.
