Library Celebrates Chinese New Year
The South Londonderry Free Library invites children to an early celebration of Chinese New Year on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 10:30 a.m.
Artist Casey Junker Bailey will share Chinese traditions and teach children the fine arts of Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy. Casey, who attended Chinese language school as a child in Hawaii, has traveled to China and has many wonderful artifacts to share. Children (and their grown-ups) will learn to paint Chinese bamboo as well as good luck banners to take home.
