Children's Book Day

Posted on 29th April 2011 at 08:16

There’s a special event planned for tomorrow at the Longview Public Library, Children’s Book Day, or Dia de los Ninos, Dia de los Libros, running from 1 to 3 pm. Children’s Librarian jan Hanson says that this celebration emphasizes the importance of advocating literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. They’ll have haiku readings, along with readings from local high school students whose first language is Spanish. Participants will be able to pick up a “passport,” traveling the Americas to find crafts, games, snacks and other activities. The Children’s Book Day is free and open to all.
