Branigan Library Invites Families to Celebrate Noon Year's Eve
While most young children miss out on the fun of a New Year’s Eve midnight countdown, they can now partake in a children’s version – a Noon Year’s Eve event on Tuesday, Dec 31, 2013 beginning at 11:00 am for children ages 5-9 and their families.
Families can celebrate together the coming of 2014 at Branigan Library with activities such as storytelling, arts and crafts (making New Year’s party hats), and raising a toast to the new year with sparkling apple cider. Kids will also learn about the countries where it will be midnight at noon – Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and the Maldives.
