El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day)


Día celebrations, held each year in April, feature crafts, activities, and a special bilingual Story Time. Each child receives a free book to take home, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.

Día’s goal is to connect children and their families to diverse books, languages, and cultures and an opportunity for the Friends of the Modesto Library to demonstrate its commitment to literacy in the community.

Local non-profit organizations such as Health Plan of San Joaquin, Center for Human Services and LearningQuest join the Modesto Friends on this special day. Admission is always free.
