Chinese New Year Celebration
February 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The New Brunswick Free Public Library will ring in the Year of the Rat with an afternoon of crafts and performances in the library’s Carl T. Valenti Community Room. Sponsored by the Confucius Institution of Rutgers University, this festive program will feature Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting, Chinese paper crafts, folk dancing, Kung Fu, and delicious food. Bring the whole family to learn about Chinese culture and celebrate the new year with us! The Confucius Institute of Rutgers University (CIRU) was formed in partnership with Jilin University in China and with support from the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban)/Confucius Institute Headquarters. CIRU aims to broaden Chinese language instruction, promote Chinese culture, spur the development of Chinese Studies, and advance a wide range of cultural exchanges of the U.S. and China.
