Día de los Niños

Why is the Library hosting the dance parties?

We celebrate Día de los Niños every year with libraries from around the country to celebrate children and connect them to a world of culture, heritage and language — each a powerful tool to strengthen families and communities. Learn more about Día de los Niños.
 

How else can I engage my child in Spanish?

The Library offers Spanish-language tools to use at home with your child. They include short videos with quick and easy activities to help your child learn to read, animated digital books and call-in service for your child to hear short stories over the phone.  

 

How old does my child have to be to participate?

Each dance party is for kids and families. All ages are welcome.
