2013 National Día Program Registry Now Open

Dia logoThe Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is inviting librarians to register for its 2013 El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day) programs in the 2013 National Día Program Registry. By registering Día programs held throughout the year in the national registry, participating libraries contribute to a national database that showcases all types and sizes of Día programming. This allows other librarians and the public to learn more about Día programs happening around the country. Libraries that register will also receive Día stickers and bookmarks (while supplies last).

This year’s slogan is Día: Diversity in Action. Día is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. Libraries can register at the Día website, where ALSC also offers a resource guide, booklist and logos for download.

The Día celebration was founded in 1996 by children’s book author Pat Mora, who proposed conceptually linking the existing El Día del Niño with literacy. The founding partner of Día is REFORMA, the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking. For more information on Día, please visit dia.ala.org.
