Children’s Day or Día de los Niños (also known as simply Día) happens every year on April 30 as a celebration of children, the love of reading, and families of all backgrounds. This year marks Día’s 25th anniversary which was originally created by Mexican-American children’s book author, Pat Mora. Sno-Isle Libraries, along with King County Library System and Seattle Public Library are excited to bring Día programs to families throughout the Puget Sound region.
