Have you heard of the celebration of Korean culture in Skokie and Niles Township?
The Niles Public Library is partnering with the Skokie Public Library and other area organizations to host a variety of Korean events, featuring professional performers and artists as well as local talent. Last month we hosted one of the first programs for the community. It was about Tae Kwon Do, Korean-style presented by Tiger Martial Arts. It was a great success with more than 80 people in attendance.
This Friday, February 21 at 4pm, join us for Korean Game Time at the Niles Public Library. Drop in to try out some traditional Korean family games, presented by Niles West High School Korean Club Students. These games are played on holidays or just to pass the time. Try out Yoot Nori, Gong-gi, and Jaeki Kicking.
While you’re here, don’t forget to browse the Library’s great collection of Korean language books for kids and adults.
