The County Library Celebrates Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros with Kids’ Fiesta

By Anna Zanarini, Early Learning Librarian, Salt Lake County Library

Bilingual storytimes, live music, cultural dancing, bounce houses, crafts and piñatas are just a few of the fun and free activities offered at the County Library’s Kids’ Fiesta on April 29.

Held annually in honor of Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros, a national celebration of kids and books, Kids’ Fiesta is an opportunity for families and children of all ages to gather at one of the best places for kids and books: The County Library.


Featured entertainment includes musical performances by the Chavez Academy and cultural dancing by Latinos in Action. There will also be Zumba Kids and dancing with Owlexander—the County Library’s mascot.

County Library team members will be on-hand to share information about downloadable resources and no fine student library cards. In addition, other community organizations will be at the Fiesta providing hands-on science experiences, crafts for the kids and other fun activities.

Did we mention there will be piñatas? It isn’t a fiesta without a piñata! We will have four large piñatas for the kids to break and we will be hosting a piñata craft so everyone can make a small piñata to take home.

DATE: Saturday, April 29, 2017
TIME: 11 am-2 pm
PLACE: Library’s Viridian Event Center, 8030 S 1825 W, West Jordan
