Editor’s note: Just got word from the library that this event has been canceled due to snowy/icy roads.
The Mall Library Connection invites you to a New Year celebration from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14! No, not the regular ol’ 2017 new year, but the Lunar New Year—the Year of the Rooster—which will officially begin on Saturday, Jan. 28. This event is great for kids of all ages—plus grown-ups and older adults! There will be a traditional Chinese dancing and a spectacular martial arts demonstration with the Lion Dancers, in the indoor courtyard in front of JC Penney. There will be also be cultural activities, crafts, music, and a brief glimpse into Chinese astrology and what a Rooster year could mean for you.
The celebration is free and no registration is necessary. The Mall Library Connection is located at 8700 N.E. Vancouver Mall Drive, Suite 285. To learn more, visit http://www.fvrl.org/loc/tm or follow The Mall Library Connection on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/VanMallLibraryConnection/.
