February is sweet and festive at Centerville Library. We have prepared two free special holiday events for kids and their family.
Happy Chinese New Year! 恭喜發財!
The Year of the Rabbit falls on February 3 this year. In traditon, the Chinese New Year lasts for 15 days starting with the new moon on the first day of the first lunar month and ends on the full moon 15 days later. The extended celebration can begin 10 days before the New Year Day with different activities and traditions taking place every day. To learn more about Chinese New Year, click HERE.
Many Alameda County libraries offer a special program in celebration of this most important Chinese holiday. At Centerville Library, we will be playing the Lantern Riddle Game for 2 weeks. You may play it at the library or on our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/centervillelibrary.
