Lunar New Year 2015

Come join us at the Lunar New Year celebration on February 13 at the UBC Asian Centre!

This is the second year that Asian Library works together with the Department of Asian Studies for this joyous event.  Main event starts at 10:00am, including a cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate UBC Library’s 100th anniversary.  Heritage and non-heritage learners then demonstrate their Chinese language skills through songs, stories and comical performances. In the afternoon, participants can learn about the traditions and culture of Lunar New Year through various fun and informative activities!
