Lunar New Year

Year of the Rat

Every year about 1.5 Billion people around the world celebrate Lunar New Year, with holiday festivities marking the start of a new lunar cycle. The lunar calendar has a 12-year cycle with a different animal each year. This year will usher in the Year of the Rat, which is the first of the 12 animal signs, and represents new beginnings and opportunities. We’re celebrating this and next month with events and activities at many of our libraries.
