El día de los niños, El día de los libros
The day of the child, the day of the book
Monday, April 30, 2018
3:00 PM – 4:10 PM
April 30th has been traditionally celebrated as “Dia de los Ninos, Dia de los Libros!”, as championed by the American Library Association, to honor “the day of the child, the day of the book.”
The Educational Outreach team at the Library of Congress, in partnership with Internet2, is pleased invite public librarians, school librarians, and K-12 teachers from around the country to join us via interactive videoconference or live web stream to honor this day and its value in promoting diversity in children’s literature. The conversation will take on the theme of librarians as heroes and how they have inspired and continue to facilitate diversity in books and other media.
The program will feature award-wining authors and an illustrator; an academic scholar and researcher; and a reference librarian from the LOC Hispanic division.
