Our library staff is dedicated to creating community spaces that cultivate the love of lifelong learning, and committed to creating sustainable change in childhood literacy, language and cultural and social skills. Our library collections contain significant numbers of culturally relevant print and non-print media materials that can support on-site and off-site programs and services. We believe our partnerships will enable us to increase public awareness of Día, and its goals in our community.
