Our Trip To Panama!

 

Although our trip wasn't literally to Panama, we visited with Panama's culture here in our own library. This Past Saturday, November 17th, our good friend Nidya Pitti Granadino hosted a special Panamanian Children Traveling Art Expo. She brought art from the children of Panama and also showed different artifacts from her home country. We want to Thank Ms. Granadino for sharing her wonderful culture with us here at the Northwest Branch. If you missed it this year, check our Events Calendar for more of these great events. Happy Holidays!
