 Update Jan. 23, 2014

As of this morning, the Lunar New Year Program is full.  In the event that a family is unable to make the program, we ask that they contact the library so we may call someone on our waiting list. Thank you! 

Children and their families are invited to join a special program to celebrate the Lunar New Year. We will explore the legend of the Chinese Dragon and create a dazzling painted horse! This program has been designed for children ages 3 to 12 years old.
