A Madison library is dedicating its time and attention to a growing population. On Saturday, the Latino community was invited to hold its Annual Day of the Children. The celebration is called "El Dia de los Ninos." It was held at the South Madison Library to bring awareness to Madison's growing Latino population, especially children.
The event offered activities for kids and gave parents information about health care and education. Organizers say they want to cater to the community's special needs.
"In one place you can put several different information resources that Latino families will use," says Fabiola Hamdan. "Many of these agencies have bilingual workers who have a lot of the materials that are in Spanish."
The event also featured music and traditional dance groups from Ecuador, Bolivia and Mexico. More than 300 people were expected to attend the celebration.
