As has been the case since its inception, thousands of brand-new books will be given away to children who attend the celebration. This year’s free book giveaway marks its 26th anniversary.

The children's day book day dates back to 1997, and is a partnership spearheaded by the El Paso Public Library and El Paso Parks and Recreation. It is the largest and most successful literacy celebration of its type in the Southwest.

The 2022 Dia de los Ninos/Dia de los Libros will take place April 30 at Memorial Park Reserve.

And unlike the last two years when the pandemic forced it to go virtual, this year's free books event will be in-person.

Typically, Día de los Ninos/Dia de los Libros includes live entertainment, jumping balloons, activity booths, and vendors. And as has been the case since its inception, thousands of brand-new books are given away to children who attend. So, if your child likes to read or you want to get him or her interested in reading more than save the date.
