GREENFIELD — Hancock County Public Library has plenty of Asian flair this month, with a new winter reading program that will bring the sights, sounds and even tastes of Chinese culture to the community.
While most celebrated the New Year Jan. 1, the most festive Chinese holiday – the Chinese New Year – is this Sunday. Organizers of the “Get Fired Up for Reading” program thought that would be a good theme to get kids, teens and adults interested in picking up a book during one of the coldest months of the year.
“We have a really good attendance with cultural events,” said Jackie Osting, adult programmer for the library. “A lot of people here don’t go to Indianapolis, and they don’t get that kind of entertainment or culture.”
