Sun Jan 28 – Celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Wood Dragon at the North University Library


Lunar New Year is a festival that recognizes the beginning of the year based on a lunar and solar calendar. An important Chinese cultural holiday, it is celebrated worldwide across East Asia and Southeast Asia as well as Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In the Chinese and Vietnamese astrology, there are a total of 12 zodiac animals, each one associated with an element such as metal, wood, water, fire, earth. As we move through the zodiac cycle, each animal and its affiliated element reappears after 12 years. This year, the San Diego Public Library is proud to celebrate the Year of the Wood Dragon. Local programming includes these at the North University Library on Judicial:

  • Bilingual Mandarin Lunar New Year Storytime, Sunday, January 28, 1:00pm – 1:30pm, North University Community Library, Community Room. Miss Lily (pictured) will be leading the bilingual storytime.
  • Lunar New Year Lion Dancer Performance, Sunday, January 28, 2:00pm – 2:30pm, North University Community Library, West Lawn. Lion dancing is a traditional dance in Chinese and other Asian cultures that is performed during Lunar New Year to welcome good luck and fortune.
