The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Library is holding fun free events for kids and families from April 24 to April 30, 2013, at various locations. It’s all part of El Día de los Niños – Día de los Libros or Children’s Day – Book Day celebrations. Get a free book, too!

Children’s Day-Book Day is a multicultural celebration that runs over a week at various ABC libraries, with storytellers, music, and drumming. One of the highlights is the presentation by Four Shillings Short of Around the World in 30 Instruments. This is a nationally touring act and they’ll play traditional music from all over creation, including the Americas, Ireland, and Scotland, on 30 different instruments such as the hammered dulcimer, bouzouki, Medieval and Renaissance woodwinds, tin whistles, sitar, and more. Sounds like great fun!

At the end of each free event, children will be given a free book to take home, as long as supplies last.
