City Libraries celebrating multi-cultural traditions via Holiday stories

In addition to visiting Santa and sharing their Christmas wish lists, families will be able to learn about other holiday traditions as well as branches of the El Paso Public Library will host Hanukkah and Kwanzaa holiday programs aimed at encouraging cultural understanding through learning and reading.

“December is a month of multicultural holiday celebrations,” said Libraries Director Dionne Mack. “We wanted our programming to encourage people of all social and cultural backgrounds to participate in these celebrations to promote learning and understanding.”

These programs will be held throughout December at library branches.  They are free and open to the public.  For more information visit www.elpasolibrary.org or call 543-5433.
