The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the
American Library Association (ALA), is reaching out to organizations
nationwide to build a national database that showcases all types and sizes
of Día programming.
Día is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of
literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to
linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and
cultures. The common goals of all Día programming are to:
- Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through
books, stories and libraries.
- Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and
embrace a child’s home language and culture.
- Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities
for learning through multiple literacies.
- Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools
for strengthening families and communities.
We invite you to tell us what you are doing at your library throughout the
year to celebrate Día. The information will display on the website, in both
the map and database format, allowing you to share it with other librarians
and the public interested in learning more about Día programs happening
around the country.
We also invite you to help us evaluate and track Día on a national level by
participating in a brief survey after your Día event(s). By checking “yes!”
at the end of this form, you agree to receive the survey to be sent in May.
The information you provide in the survey will help us evaluate the success
of Día and provide information to help Día grow.
