Multicultural Holiday Events @ Your Library

What are your plans for the holidays? If you’ll be in town, take a break from the season’s hustle and bustle and visit your local Broward CountyBoy with holiday gifts Library. This December, you can enjoy a host of fun, unique multicultural holiday happenings that offer something for almost every age group and interest.

While you’re there, pick up books and other resources on holiday traditions, cooking and decorating, or find children’s books that range from timeless holiday classics to new favorites. Find seasonal music from around the world, and stock up on movies and DVDs that will get you in the spirit and keep you (and the kids) occupied during winter break. Check out BCL WOW to learn how to download free music and books and – while you’re there – how to get yourself the BCL WOW free app for the holidays.

Whatever the reason, make sure to schedule a visit to Broward County Library this holiday season!
