It is recommended that the City Council adopt a resolution authorizing the acceptance of $1,000 in grant funding from the California State Library to support D?a de los ni?os/D?a de los libros programs at Main and Grand Avenue Branch Libraries and approving Budget Amendment 19.051.

Body
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
South San Francisco Public Library has been awarded $1,000 from California State Library to support D?a de los ni?os/D?a de los libros programs that celebrate the culture and heritage of many residents of South San Francisco. The nationally recognized celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The common goals of all D?a de los ni?os programming 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.
The South San Francisco programs will highlight cultural books, art, music, dance and film. Funds will be used for books to give to families, a performer, a craft activity and refreshments.

Grant funds will be used to amend the Library Department's current FY 2018-19 Operating Budget per Budget Amendment 19.051. Receipt of these funds does not commit the City to ongoing funding.
