El Dia de los Ninos/Libros!
Children's Day/Book Day!
El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), is a celebration 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.
On April 30, the Finkelstein Memorial Library offered stories in different languages, music and refreshments for children ages 3 and up. Guitarist Jesus Chuquitaipe performed in this multilingual program.
The Finkelstein Memorial Library's Children's Department was awarded a $5,000 grant by Dollar General Store, sponsored by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association to sponsor this and other exciting multicultural programs.
Finkelstein was one of 12 libraries throughout the United States chosen to receive this grant.
