Carnegie honors Mexican heritage with ‘los Ninos'

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's Main branch in Oakland will be celebrating Mexican heritage on April 28 with a “Dia de los Ninos” event.

Mexicans celebrate Dia de los Ninos in April. In 1996, Pat Mora, an author and poet, learned about the holiday while being interviewed in Arizona, and she proposed linking an American Children's Day, the celebration of childhood and kids, with literacy and bilingualism.

At the library from 3 to 4 p.m., the celebration will include multicultural stories, snacks and a take-home project. Registration is required for this event. Details: www.clpgh.org
