The strength of our community has always been the diversity of its people. The strength of the Irving Public Library is the diversity of our collections and our commitment to serving people of diverse backgrounds.
Irving Public Library joins libraries from across the country in celebrating Día. Día is a multicultural celebration of children, families, and reading, and emphasizes the importance of advocating literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Founded by children’s book author Pat Mora as El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), Día has encouraged the celebration of children and books for more than 20 years.
No longer just a place for books, Irving Public Library is an example of diversity in action! Our library provides opportunity for endless learning and enjoyment for all people. Children and their families are invited to join us for two special events to read together and celebrate our community’s rich tapestry of cultures.
At 4 p.m., Thursday April 25, South Irving Library will be celebrating with crafts, face painting, balloon art and a fun puppet show. At 2:30 p.m., Saturday April 27, East Branch Library will have a presentation by award-winning bilingual author Lupe Ruiz-Flores, followed by children’s crafts and light refreshments.
No registration is required to attend and admission is free. South Irving Library is located at 601 Schulze Drive. East Branch Library is located at 440 S. Nursery Road. Call (972) 721-4612 for more information.
