The AF Library recently partnered with the American Falls High School Senior Project Program and Spanish classes to present El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), a multicultural celebration of children, families, and reading. Senior, Emilia Carrillo, as part of her Senior project, took the lead in planning the event. Under the direction of Spanish teacher Hailey Lusk, Emilia enlisted the help of classmates to present a funfilled evening where families enjoyed crafts, snacks, story times, games and a chance to win raffle prizes. Each family got to choose a free book to take home, made possible through a program from the Idaho Commission for Libraries.
Registration Begins May 31st.
1st Program is June 13, 2018 from 2-4 PM.
More details coming soon!
On Wednesday, April 25th from 5:30-6:30 pm, the AF Library will join libraries from across the country in celebrating El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), often known as Día.
