Preference for attending the following programs will be given
to children who reside in the Jericho School District. Out-ofdistrict grandchildren of Jericho residents will be wait-listed for
the first two weeks of registration and then will be accepted into
programs as space permits. When signing up for programs please
bring your library card and proof of your child’s age if you have
not registered for our e-mail database. Non-residents may sign
up the day of the program as space allows.
We ask all program registrants to confirm that they will be attending programs. We make reminder calls 2 days in advance. If we
do not receive a return call we may call another child on the wait
list to take the spot. In this way, we are able to accommodate as
many children as possible.
Registration continues as space permits for both programs.

Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration
Saturday, September 6 at 2 PM
In China, the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second grandest celebration after the Spring Festival. It takes its
name from the fact that it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season. The ancient Chinese observed that the movement of the moon had a close relationship with changes of the seasons and agricultural
production. The moon cake is the special food of the Mid-Autumn Festival. On that day, people sacrifice
moon cakes to the moon as an offering and eat them for celebration.
There will be moon cakes, lanterns to make and traditional Chinese dance, song and costumes!
Come to the JPL for a fun-filled afternoon of activities celebrating
the Mid-Autumn Festival including the tasting of moon cakes.
Tickets are available for Jericho cardholders immediately.
Non-residents may pick up tickets beginning August 18th.
