Lunar New Year 2018 - Newcastle Libraries

11 Jan 2018

Many of us ushered in the New Year on January 1st but Chinese Australians are gearing up to celebrate New Year’s for the second time, as the Lunar calendar welcomes the Year of the Dog on Friday 16th February. The Library is celebrating with events and activities for people of all ages. 

You can learn Tai Chi at Merewether Ocean Baths, try on some tradional costumes, or sample some tea varieties whilst learning about the rituals and cultural significance of tea. Book a spot in our knotting workshop or come along to any of our bilingual storytimes to share Chinese stories, songs, and craft. To finish off the week we are screening the Karate Kid at Wallsend Library. Happy New Year!
