The City of Santa Maria Public Library and Recreation and Parks Department invited the community to celebrate Día de los niños, or Children’s Day and Book Day on Saturday, April 30.
The event was held at the Santa Maria Public Library located at 421 S. McClelland St.
The festival recognized the importance of children, families, and reading.
Activities included music, dance, food, face painting, crafts, culture, and stories.
"We have a bunch of non-profits with us here and we are trying to bring our community back together at the library and welcome people back," Santa Maria Public Library librarian, Kaela Villalobos said.
This project was supported by the U.S Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Any questions may be directed to the Library's Youth Services division at (805) 925-0994, ext. 8564.
