India

Explore India @ Your Library

 

* Space is limited.

Thursday, May 16th @ 10am.
This year, as we celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month,  we will be traveling to  India. Children and their  families are invited to join us for a free  puppet show.

* Tickets are not required. The safety of the children we serve is our first consideration. Room  capacity, as  determined by the fire  Marshall, as well as our desire for a  high-quality program necessitates limits.

This program will be in place of our regularly scheduled storytime.

Tagore Society

Northwest Branch Library will be having a presentation to honor the life and works of Rabindranath Tagore of India. He was a poet, short-story writer, song composer, novelist, playwright, essayist, and painter. You are welcome to join us and be enlightened. This program will be on January 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM. See You There!

A History Lost to the West

If I said the names, Ramses the Second, Socrates, Cleopatra, Julius Ceasar, and so on, most of you would not only know who they are but be able to write a paragraph about them. After all, you learned about them in school. If I said the name, Chandragupta Maurya, Vardhamana Mahavira, Ashoka, Samudra Gupta, I am guessing that few of you would be able to tell me who they were or much about them.
