Happy New Year!

Today, February 8, is the Lunar New Year. It is celebrated in many Asian countries and in communities all over the world!

To celebrate, we are holding a Chinese New Year celebration here at the Library on Saturday the 13th beginning at 1:00 pm. No registration is required.

This program is for anyone interested in celebrating the Chinese New Year and learning about the history of the holiday. There will also be a demonstration of a Chinese Tea Ceremony, a concert of songs played on an Erhu (two-stringed, traditional instrument), and a traditional Lion Dance.

Other activities will take place, and special Chinese treats will be served!

2016 is The Year of the Monkey.

Information on the Chinese Zodiac can be found in Chinese Zodiac Animals by Sanmu Tang [J 133.5 TAN] or Why Rat Comes First: The Story of the Chinese Zodiac by Clara Yen [JP YEN].
