With the population of the United States becoming more diverse each year, working to connect children and their families to books that celebrate our diverse country has never been more important. The Dí­a celebration (El dí­a de los niños/El dí­a de los libros Children’s Day/Book Day) works to do just that.

As the 2014 Dí­a celebration approaches the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is inviting librarians to register their 2014 Dí­a programs in the Dí­a National Program Registry. By registering their Dí­a programs held throughout the year in the national registry, libraries build a searchable database that showcases all types and sizes of Dí­a programming allowing families to find programs near them. Libraries that register will also receive Dí­a stickers, buttons and bookmarks (while supplies last).

Once you’ve registered your program be sure to look through the new Dí­a website which is packed full of free resources to help you as you plan your program.
