Lunar New Year is coming up on Feb. 5 – and Burnaby Public Library is giving local families a chance to celebrate.
On Sunday, Feb. 3, the McGill branch (4595 Albert St.) hosts Lunar New Year Lantern Making from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Families, teens and adults are invited to drop in to make a lantern to welcome the Year of the Pig. Supplies are limited, so please arrive early. It’s aimed at ages six and up, and adults must accompany children under 10. No registration is needed.
On Monday, Feb. 4, the Tommy Douglas branch (7311 Kingsway) gives children a chance to make Lunar New Year crafts – you can create your own paper lantern, dragon and lucky envelopes. The session runs from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and is aimed at ages five to 12; children under 10 need to bring an adult who will take part. For information, call 604-522-3971.
