South County Regional Library
Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by learning about and creating a traditional Guatemalan kite. These kites, flown during the Day of the Dead (more accurately translated for Guatemalans as Day of the Spirits) are considered direct links to ancestors’ spirits. Kites are flown by families at ancestors’ gravesites and families come together to eat, drink, and reminisce.
This program is scheduled for 6:15 p.m., Tuesday September 27, and is sponsored by the Friends of South County Regional Library.
The Library is located at 21100 Three Oaks Parkway.
