El Paso Public Library: Donate Book for Dia de los Libros Event, Get Free Chick-Fil-A
Love you the Chick-Fil-A? Got a new book you’re willing to donate?
The 2022 Dia de los Ninos/Dia de los Libros will take place April 30, and unlike the last two years when the pandemic forced it to go virtual, the 26th Annual free books event will be in-person.
As has been the case since its inception, thousands of brand-new books will be given away to children who attend the celebration.
New Book Donations Needed
The El Paso Public Library is looking for some help with reading material to giveaway on that day, and maybe you can help them and they you.
Support Dia de los Niños/Dia de los Libros with a book donation, and lunch is on them. Donate a new children's book and get a Chick-Fil-A Original Chicken Sandwich in return.
26th Annual Día de los Niños, Día de los Libros
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.
• Saturday, April 30, 2022
• 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Memorial Park Reserve, 3100 Copper Street
The day includes live entertainment, jumping balloons, activity booths, and vendors.
