Chinese New Year Celebration!

Chinese New Year Celebration!

Children and their families are welcome to join us as we celebrate Chinese New Year 2017—the Year of the Rooster!  On Saturday, January 28, between 2:00 and 3:30PM, we’ll read stories, listen to music, play games, make crafts, and enjoy light refreshments.

Why celebrate Chinese New Year?  Chinese New Year is celebrated in China as a way to rest after a year’s hard work and to visit with family, and it’s also a time to make wishes [somewhat like our New Year’s resolutions] for the upcoming year.  The Children’s Library staff looks forward to this time of year when we all learn about another culture through traditions, legends, fairy tales/folk tales, food, crafts, and games.
