Winter Festivals, Part 2

Library staffers Sandy Linn, Anne Jerke, and Kathy Gustafson have been busy creating more displays featuring winter festivals.  Look for displays on the Chinese New Year and Pancha Ganapati, the Hindu Family Festival of Giving, on the main level of the library.  Head downstairs to see a display on the winter solstice.  Check out the bibliographies below if you are interested in reading about the festivals.  Please ask a librarian for assistance in locating materials or if you would like more information.  Happy Holidays!
