Digging for Words: José Alberto Gutiérrez and the Library he Built - by Angela Burke Kunkel


¡Feliz Día de los niños/Día de los libros (Children's Book Day - a.k.a Día)! Each year on April 30 librarians and educators celebrate diversity in children's books. This year I celebrated by reading Kunkle's book about a trash collector in Bogotá, Colombia who started a library with books that had been thrown away. The book is also available in Spanish (which I also read) as Rescatando palabras. An excellent reminder that one person's trash is another one's treasure.
