Children and adults enjoyed several different types of crafts including (the most popular) Talavera style painted piggy banks, free tamales, a live performance by the Aztec Multi-Cultural Dance Group of Yerington, and a pinata filled with goodies. Kids were invited to dance with the Aztec group after their performance and were given small trinkets for doing so.
We were happy to showcase our new arrivals for our Spanish and bilingual language collection inside the library which included new titles in adult and children's fiction and non-fiction and new additions to the Spanish/bilingual DVD and Audio Book collections! These items are available today at the Fernley Branch Library for check-out.
We can't wait for the Spring 2010 event which will feature more diverse cultural traditions. If you participated in our 2009 event leave us a comment and let us know what you thought of the program, or if you have ideas for upcoming events at your library let us know!
