Derry News

---- — DERRY — It was a journey to China for children stopping by Derry Public Library last week.

The library held a Chinese New Year celebration and invited children to hear Chinese stories, learn about traditions and make colorful crafts as part of the program.

Library staff member Kathy Lane traveled to China recently and enjoyed telling stories about the country. She also led children in craft fun, teaching them to create puppets and musical instruments to be used later in a Chinese parade.

The library hosts a full schedule of events and special activities in its Children’s Room. Call 432-6140 for information.
