Harford County Public Library joins the 8th Annual Harford County Celebration of Cultures on Saturday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Bel Air.
The Bel Air Library’s new Children’s Department will be transformed into Sherwood Forest, with activities for children of all ages. Children are invited to come dressed in their favorite costumes and will have the opportunity to work on special projects in StreamWorks. Other activities include woodland creature crafts, story time, scavenger hunt, dance party, indoor archery and more. Children will also have the opportunity to make paper princess hats and Robin Hood hats.
At the end of the day, library customers are encouraged to attend the family movie, “The BFG (Big Friendly Giant),” part of the larger Celebration of Cultures experience, at Festival Park at 8 p.m.
In addition to the Bel Air Library, Celebration of Cultures features entertainment along Main Street and at the Bel Air Armory and Festival Park. Activities include family entertainment, cultural performances, ethnic foods, local artisans, crafts, street performers, children’s activities, music, dancing, demonstrations and more.
“The new Children’s Department at the Bel Air Library is the perfect area for children to learn about various cultures,” said Mary Hastler, CEO of Harford County Public Library. “The space provides areas for many activities, and StreamWorks will allow children to learn more about cultures through technology.”
