Clark College invites the community to an evening of free, family activities celebrating Latino culture and the value of literacy from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday in the Gaiser Student Center, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.

Celebración de Mi Gente: El Día del Niño/El Día del Libro, translated Celebration of My People: Day of the Child/Day of the Book, is an annual event held near the Mexican holiday of Día del Niño, which the American Library Association celebrates as Día del Libro.

The festival will feature bilingual activities including a puppet show, storytelling, book reading and games plus dancing, crafts, face painting and snacks. Clark College’s mascot, Oswald the Penguin, will pose for photos with children.

Driving directions and parking maps are available at www.clark.edu/maps. Those needing accommodation due to a disability in order to fully participate should contact Clark College’s Disability Support Services Office at 360-992-2314 or 360-991-0901 (VP), before the event.
