Chinese New Year Story Hour and Take-and-Make Craft

Chris reads a Chinese New Year tale in English and Chinese for his first story hour! Watch the video to hear the story of Olivia, an auspicious (lucky) calf, in The Year of the Ox: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Miah Alcorn. Special thanks to Jill for recording and editing the video.

Don’t forget to pick up a craft kit at the library to make a dragon using cupcake liners. PLUS a red envelope, or 紅包 (hóngbāo), with a Chinese New Year treat. Kit includes written instructions. For visuals and a video demonstration, visit

Happy 牛 (niú = ox) Year!
