Celebrating Día / Celebrando Día

El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a celebration every day of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

The common goals of Día are to:

  • Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories, and libraries.
  • Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.
  • Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.
  • Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.

Sonoma County Library celebrates Día this year with two fun activities:

Mi Libro/My Book. This fun literacy project invites caregivers and children to use drawings, collage and/or photos to create a book that is all about the child’s interests. Pick up the Día craft activity kit at your local branch starting Monday, April 12.

Celebrate Día Virtual Event. Join your bilingual librarians on Friday, April 30th at 10:30 AM for a virtual story time with books, songs, and a show and tell, where participating children can share their Mi Libro/My Book creations!

These activities are made possible by a grant from the Early Learning with Families (ELF) project, an initiative of the California State Library. The ELF project is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.

Los objetivos comunes de Día son:

The common goals of Día are to:

  • Celebrar a los niños y conéctelos con el mundo del aprendizaje a través de libros, cuentos y bibliotecas.
  • Fomentar el desarrollo cognitivo y de la alfabetización de manera que se respete y adopte el idioma y la cultura del hogar del niño.
  • Presentar a las familias los recursos comunitarios que brindan oportunidades de aprendizaje a través de múltiples alfabetizaciones.
  • Reconocer y respetar la cultura, el patrimonio y el idioma como instrumentos poderosos para fortalecer a las familias y las comunidades.

La Biblioteca del Condado de Sonoma está celebrando Día este año con dos actividades divertidos:

Mi Libro/My Book. Este proyecto de alfabetización invita a los niños y sus cuidadores a utilizar dibujos, collage y/o fotografías para crear un libro que trata sobre los intereses del niño. Recoja el paquete de actividades Día en su sucursal local a partir del lunes 12 de abril.

Celebre el evento virtual Día. ¡Únase a sus bibliotecarias bilingües el viernes, 30 de abril a las 10:30 AM para una hora de cuentos con libros, canciones, donde los niños participantes podrán compartir sus creaciones de Mi Libro / My Book!

Estas actividades son posibles gracias a una subvención del proyecto Early Learning with Families (ELF), una iniciativa del California State Library. El proyecto ELF es apoyado total o parcialmente por el U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services bajo las disposiciones del Library Services and Technology Act, administrada en California por el Bibliotecario Estatal.

SLAM 2020

SLAM 2020: A Virtual Poetry Slam presented by the Sonoma County Library

Featuring Youth Poet Laureate Zoya Ahmed

2020 has been a wild ride…and what better way to close it out than with the talented young adults of Sonoma County? Community members are invited to SLAM 2020: A Virtual Poetry Slam on Saturday, December 12, from 3 to 5 p.m. This virtual event is open to performers between the ages of 13 to 19; teens will also serve as emcees and judges. All ages are welcome to attend to cheer on Sonoma County’s talented teens.

Sonoma County Youth Poet Laureate Zoya Ahmed is the slam’s featured poet. Ahmed was not only a 2019 California Poetry Out Loud finalist, she won the 2019 California’s Poetry Ourselves competition with her original poem “A Concerto of Spice.” With her passion for social justice, she also directed and performed in the 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly at Maria Carrillo High School. Ahmed said that she attempts to embrace her rich South Asian ancestorhood, and confront the minutiae of privilege and power, microaggressions and the facade of the American Dream. She hopes that her poems give a voice to all those who are silenced.

A poetry slam is a competition in which individuals perform their own poetry before an audience. The poems and the artists' performances are scored by volunteer judges. A typical poetry slam might include many styles of poetry; love poems, critical social commentary, hilarious comic poems and moving personal confessions. For this virtual slam, poets will submit two pre-recorded videos of their poems, which will be played at the live event and scored by teen judges. Prizes will be awarded to the three top-scoring poets.

The library Poetry Slam offers teens a platform to speak their truth and share their creativity with the larger community. Organizers encourage teens to be inspired to engage in, perform and experience the world of poetry—particularly spoken word poetry.


SLAM 2020: Un concurso virtual de poesía organizado por la Biblioteca del Condado de Sonoma

con una interpretación especial de la joven poeta premiada, Zoya Ahmed

Este año 2020 ha sido un viaje difícil. ¿Y qué mejor manera de cerrarlo que con los talentosos jóvenes del condado de Sonoma? Se les invita a los miembros de la comunidad al SLAM 2020: Un concurso virtual de poesía de las 3 a 5 de la tarde el sábado 12 de diciembre. Este evento virtual está abierto a artistas de 13 a 19 años de edad. Los adolescentes también servirán como maestros de ceremonia y jueces. Todas las edades están bienvenidas a animar a los jóvenes talentosos del condado de Sonoma.

Zoya Ahmed, la joven poeta premiada del condado de Sonoma es la poeta invitada al concurso. Ahmed fue finalista del concurso de California Poetry Out Loud del 2019 y también ganó la competición Poetry Ourselves de California del 2019 con su poema original “A Concerto of Spice” (Un concierto de especias). Su pasión por la justicia social la llevó a dirigir y actuar en la Asamblea de Martin Luther King Jr. del 2020 en la escuela secundaria de Maria Carrillo High School. Ahmed dijo que intentara meterse en la rica herencia de sus antepasados surasiáticos y afrontar los beneficios del privilegio y poder, las microagresiones y la fachada del sueño americano. Ella espera que sus poemas les den voz a todos los silenciados.

Un “slam” de poesía es una competición en la cual individuos interpretan su propia poesía ante una audiencia. Los poemas y las interpretaciones por los artistas son calificados por jueces voluntarios. Un “slam” de poesia típico tal vez incluirá a múltiples estilos de poesía, como poemas de amor, comentarios que critican lo social, poemas cómicos graciosos y confesiones personales conmovedores. Para este “slam” virtual, poetas entregarán dos videos pregrabados de sus poemas, que estarán sintonizados en el evento en vivo y calificados por jueces jóvenes. Los premios serán otorgados a los tres poetas con las calificaciones más altas.

La biblioteca Poetry Slam ofrece a los adolescentes una plataforma para decir su verdad y compartir su creatividad con la comunidad en general. Los organizadores animan a los adolescentes a inspirarse para participar, actuar y experimentar el mundo de la poesía, especialmente la poesía hablada.

The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers--and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

What are Zines?

Zines (rhymes with greens) are small do-it-yourself publications that can be about anything—how-to guides, comics, a collection of poetry, an art book, etc. These DIY publications are generally reproduced and distributed in small batches.

The history of zinemaking is closely tied to social and political movements because as the Milwaukee Zine Fest organizers state, “Zines provide a safe, independent platform of expression for underrepresented and marginalized voices: Black, Indigenous & People of Color, young people, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ(+) community, persecuted religious groups, and people with limited economic resources” (https://www.binderymke.com/what-is-a-zine).

You Are Invited To Create A Zine!

DIY zine starter kits will be available for individuals aged 12 to 18 in limited quantities for curbside pick-up at the Central Santa Rosa, Guerneville Regional, Northwest Santa Rosa, Roseland Regional, Rohnert Park-Cotati, Sebastopol Regional, and Windsor Regional Library branches.

Please call your nearest branch to reserve a kit.

Each kit includes:

  • Zine template (Feel free to use or create your own!)
  • Paper
  • Sharpie
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Official Santa Rosa Zine Fest 2020 sticker
  • Zine donation form
  • A stamped envelope to submit your zine to the archive

Share and Archive Your Zine!

The Library wants to preserve your zines! You may submit your SRZF creation to be archived in the library’s special collections.

Submitted zines will be made into a collective zine of 2020 memories!

You may submit in two ways:

  • Scan your zine or save a digital copy of your zine and upload to the Sonoma Responds portal.
  • Sign the Zine donation form and send your zine through the mail to:
    SR Zine Fest
    PO Box 9635
    Santa Rosa, CA 95405

Digital and physical submissions agree to the Sonoma Responds Terms and Conditions.

Email the Sonoma Responds team with questions about archiving your zines, sonomaresponds@sonomalibrary.org

¿Qué son las Zines?

Zines son pequeñas publicaciones de bricolaje que pueden ser sobre cualquier tema: guías prácticas, cómics, una colección de poesía, un libro de arte, etc. Estas publicaciones de bricolaje generalmente se reproducen y distribuyen en pequeños lotes.

La historia de la creación de fanzines está estrechamente ligada a los movimientos sociales y políticos porque, como afirman los organizadores del Milwaukee Zine Fest, “los zines brindan una plataforma de expresión segura e independiente para las voces subrepresentadas y marginadas: negrxs, indígenas y de color, jóvenes, personas con discapacidades, la comunidad lesbiana, gay, bisexual y transgénerx+, grupos religiosos perseguidos y personas con recursos económicos limitados” (https://www.binderymke.com/what-is-a-zine).

¡Estás invitado a crear un Zine!

Los kits de inicio de zine de bricolaje estarán disponibles para personas de 12 a 18 años en cantidades limitadas para que los recojan en la acera en las sucursales de la Biblioteca Central de Santa Rosa, Guerneville Regional, Noroeste de Santa Rosa, Roseland Regional, Rohnert Park-Cotati, Sebastopol Regional y Windsor Regional.

Llame a su sucursal más cercana para reservar un kit.

Cada kit incluye:

  • Plantilla de Zine (¡Siéntete libre de usar o crear el tuyo propio!)
  • Papel
  • Sharpie
  • Barra de pegamento
  • Lápiz
  • Pegatina oficial del Santa Rosa Zine Fest 2020
  • Formulario de donación de Zine
  • Un sobre sellado para enviar su zine al archivo

¡Comparte y archiva tu Zine!

¡La biblioteca quiere preservar sus zines! Puede enviar su creación de SRZF para que se archive en las colecciones especiales de la biblioteca.

¡Las revistas enviadas se convertirán en una revista colectiva de memorias de 2020!

Puede enviarlo de dos formas:

  • Escanee su zine o guarde una copia digital de su zine y cárguela en el portal Sonoma Responds.
  • Firme el formulario de donación de Zine y envíe su zine por correo a:
    SR Zine Fest

    Santa Rosa, CA 95405

Los envíos digitales y físicos están de acuerdo con los Términos y Condiciones de Sonoma Responds..

Stories will air twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday evenings throughout the month of October, ending with a final show on Halloween.

A literary program that celebrates the season, Sonoma Scares videos enhance the story-reading experience with music and visual effects.

“Why should children have all the storytime fun? That was some of the thinking behind this program,” said Sonoma County Library Librarian Emma Wendel, one of the performers and leads on the project. “Hosting a series of scary stories for Halloween aimed at adult patrons elevates storytime into a unique and seasonal event.”

The series will include classic tales of horror, most available in the public domain or available to request in the Sonoma County Library’s catalog. The stories include:

  • “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe
  • “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe
  • “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe
  • “The Isle of Pines” by Ambrose Bierce
  • “La Llorona” by Angel Vigil
  • A selection from Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • Three poems by Emily Dickinson
  • “An Arrest” by Ambrose Bierce
