April 30: A Day to Honor Bilingual Literacy

Today--April 30--is designated by the American Library Association as a day to highlight the importance of helping every child learn to read regardless of his or her linguistic or cultural background. It's called El dia de los ninos/El dia de los libros or Children's Day/Book Day and is a day in which libraries in several hundred locations will feature bilingual literacy, according to Melanie Anderson, a lobbyist for the American Library Association. Her association will hold an event to highlight bilingual literacy today in the U.S. Capitol at 3 p.m.
