El Paso Public Libraries and El Paso Parks & Recreation have set the date for the 2020 Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros children's literacy event. The 24th annual celebration will take place on Saturday, April 25, at San Jacinto Plaza.

And as has been the case since its inception, thousands of brand-new books will be given away to children who attend the celebration that day. The event has distributed more than 316,000 new books over the last two decades.

The schedule of activities hasn't been revealed yet, but typically, Día de los Niños includes live entertainment, jumping balloons, activity booths, and vendors. I’ll have more details as the event gets closer.

For now, if your child likes to read or you want to get him or her interested in reading more than save the date.
