You are invited to learn about and celebrate the Kwanzaa principle Umoja (Unity); to strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race. This event will feature a performer and light refreshments.
The word "Kwanzaa" comes from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza," meaning "first fruits." Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and ends with a communal feast called the Karamu on January 1. Kwanzaa is a seven-day holiday that celebrates Family, Community and Culture. The seven days of Kwanzaa match the seven principles celebrated during the week.
* This event is currently full. Come see a 3D printer in action and learn how to turn what you build in Minecraft into a printable model. We'll talk a little about 3D printing, and then we'll jump into Minecraft. Using a free program called Mineways, we'll take whatever you make in Minecraft, turn it into a 3D model, and print it out. Please note: 3D printing takes awhile, so we won't be able to print your models the same day - you'll be able to pick them up at the library in a week or so. For grades 4 and up! Registration is required.
Create your very own work of art using buttons, paint, and canvas. Each member of the family will receive their own canvas board for their project. Enjoy cookies and hot chocolate while you wait for your pieces of art to dry.
Hagan sus propias obras de arte con botones, pintura y lienzo. Cada miembro de la familiar recibirá su propio lienzo para el proyecto. También habrá galletas y chocolate caliente mientras espera a que se sequen sus obras.
