DIA IN A DAY: The quick and easy, down-and-dirty of DIA (Diversity in Action)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Encouraging culturally diverse communities through programming is part of a librarian’s job in the 21st century. Celebrating our communities through culturally diverse programs provides children the opportunity to understand others and to get to know people from all over the world, regardless of their religion, skin color or language. We will feature fun, easy and inexpensive ways to celebrate DIA. Author Shindana Feagins and illustrator Syreeta Blakely will co-present introducing “We have such in common”, a multicultural picture book that focuses on our common traits instead of our differences. Join us for an entertaining presentation, full of ideas that will make your DIA program a total success!
