This festival is celebration of cultures and languages with arts and crafts, games, small group activities, stories, puppet shows, Chinese and Japanese calligraphy, and live performances for the whole family to enjoy. Come and learn about B-N community educators and the services they provide; get your library card; and explore global cultures in our community.
