While January 20 is Martin Luther King Day, the civil rights leader will be honored all month long by children and adults at the Tulare County Library branches. Participants can make hand prints on which to write "kind words," and the hand shapes will be joined in a banner in Dr. King's memory. The banners will decorate the branches and the branch with the longest banner will receive a prize to share with their "kind" patrons.
The branches are also extending the holiday celebrations by offering Chinese lantern and New Year's hat crafts for the Chinese New Year on January 31, 2014.
A non-holiday themed, but fun, Mustache Charm Bracelet craft will also be featured for kids who like bling with zing.
