April is poetry month, and here are some recommendations in Spanish. For Kids, Milo Imagina el Mundo by Matt de La Pena, Bravo by Margarita Engle, and Me dicen Güero by David Bowles. For teens Gabi Fragmentos de una adolescente by Isabel Quintero and La PoetX by Elizabeth Acevedo. I also recommend these novels written in English by Latina authors Fat Chance, Charlie Vega by Crystal Maldonado, Infinite Country by Patricia Engle y Of Women and Salt by Gabriela Garcia.

This year we will celebrate El Día del Niño, El Día del Libro with a virtual program. Share with our special guest, professional ventriloquist Vikki Gasco Green along with Rodrigo and Carly. It will happen on April 24th at 1 p.m.

Summer is almost here and that means Biblioteca en Camino will be out and about in Deschutes county! Find updates about our visits this summer on social media @deschuteslibrarysvcslatinos.
