Versión en español / Spanish version

King County Library System (KCLS) is highlighting the importance of literacy and stories for children from all backgrounds on Sunday, April 26 from 2-5pm at the Bellevue Library.
Join us in celebrating Children’s Day/Book Day, known as DÍA!

DÍA is a nationally recognized initiative that connects children and their families to multicultural books, languages and cultures. 2020 marks the 10th year KCLS has celebrated this important event. This year we will have a special program with:

  • A World of Music, presented by Eli Rosenblatt. A musical show with messages of acceptance and the importance of connection to cultural identity.
  • Local Spanish news Univisión anchors Paula Lamas and Jaime Méndez will read bilingual stories for children.
  • Crafts, stories, snacks and games throughout the day.
  • Free multicultural books, provided with generous support from the KCLS Foundation.
    First come first served, while supplies last.

In addition to the April 26 DÍA event at the Bellevue Library, other KCLS Libraries will host DÍA programs April 25-May 2.

Explore the recommended diversity of materials. Find resources in many languages. View DÍA booklists and booklists about games.
