|Families enjoyed the Día de los Niños event, |
supported with LSTA funds, at the Waukesha Public Library.
Waukesha Public Library's Día de los Niños program, generously funded by the LSTA Mini-Grant, was held April 29, 2017. The program was a great success! Along with the Spanish language and bilingual books and cultural craft project supplies funded by the grant, we also involved community partners - three local businesses contributed food and gift cards to purchase refreshments and supplies, two musical ensembles featuring school-aged kids performed, and local agencies and community partners assisted us with marketing and provided Spanish-speaking volunteers. About 250 children and adults attended, well exceeding our goal of 100-150.
