Richmond Public Library is welcoming the Year of the Rabbit. This year’s event at the Brighouse branch will be a cross-cultural community celebration that honours traditions, highlights cultural experiences, and welcomes people of all ages. 

On Feb. 3 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., people can stop by the Brighouse library for an afternoon of Chinese song, dance, art, crafts, and traditional experiences. 

Youth and the young at heart will delight in the dance exhibitions that include a K-Pop demonstration, a lion dance, and Chinese folk dances. Children will be captivated by the Monkey King puppet show and the Han-style costumes showcased in the costume show. There will also be a choir performance of traditional Chinese New Year folk songs by a local seniors’ choir. For those looking to try their hand at some traditional Chinese activities, there will be Chinese calligraphy stations, ink painting, and a compass fortune-telling workshop. 

The library is grateful for the the event partners and sponsors whose contributions have helped to make this celebration possible: Big Bear Education, CLF Kong Fu Club, Chinese Couplets Study Club, E Show Dance, Richmond Chinese Senior Group, Richmond Family Place Society, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Richmond Chinese Women’s Club, Touchstone Family Association, and VISM Education Group. 

This event is free to attend and no registration is required. To learn more, visit
