Two weeks of kids and books

By From page A4 | April 12, 2013

All the Yolo County Library branches will celebrate Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), a nationwide festival of children from April 20 to May 4. Children of all ages are invited to bring their families, where they can enjoy dance performances, stories, songs, crafts, face-painting and other family-friendly activities.

“Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros brings families together, further strengthening our communities,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong.

Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros is a special day set aside to recognize the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. One of the goals of this event is to help build home libraries. With that in mind, the Yolo County Library will be distributing free books to all children in attendance.

Additionally, three of the branch libraries (West Sacramento, Winters and the Stephens Library in Davis) will feature a special presentation by local children’s author Frank Araujo.
