February 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join in the fun at the Cuba Library as we celebrate the Chinese New Year on Saturday, February 1 at 11:00 a.m. The Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar, and marks the first day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar. According to the Chinese horoscope, this is the year of the rat, which is considered a sign of wealth and surplus. Rats are cleaver, quick thinkers; successful but content with living a quiet and peaceful life. The library will welcome the new year with Chinese themed crafts, stories, and activities, including a few songs performed by Daisy Wu on the guzheng, a traditional stringed instrument. Space in this program is limited so please contact the library to register at 585-968-1668 or cuba@stls.org. This program is free and open to all ages. This program is funded in part by a donation from the Kaleigh Wilday Foundation.
