Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and we will be celebrating all month long at the Evelyn Meador Library. With displays throughout the library and some great programs for all ages, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to celebrate as well! Here’s what you can come and do at the library this month:

• May 14, 4:00 PM- Join us as we create our own mandalas. A mandala is a symbolic picture of the universe. Mandalas date from the 4th century and traditionally have been created around the world in places such as Tibet, India, Nepal, China, Japan, Bhutan, and Indonesia for purposes both sacred and secular.

• May 15, 10:00 AM- Join us to learn and practice Japanese Calligraphy and taste some Japanese sweets and tea and learn about seasonal customs, history and culture of Japan. Presented by the "Feel JAPAN" Ladies Group. Registration is Required.

• May 15, 4:00 PM- Celebrate Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month by joining us for a screening of the Disney film Moana. All ages welcome.

• May 22, 4:15 PM- Come to the library to learn how to cook in this class on simple recipes. This month we'll be celebrating Pacific Asian Heritage Month by making rice and teriyaki chicken!
