North York Central Library is proud to celebrate Asian Heritage Month on Saturday May 14 with a full afternoon of great pr

The event will begin at 12:30 pm with a great presentation on Arab food and cooking. 

At 2:00 pm a fun story time especially for families will feature the new book ‘Nearly Nonsense’ comprised of 10 traditional Hoja tales from Turkey. 

Rounding out the event will be a Perisan music and dance performance featuring such instruments as the Tar, the Suling and the Kecapi at 3:30 pm. 


The event is free and all are welcome!  All events will take place on the Concourse level of the library.  Please join us for what will be a great celebration of West Asian heritage and culture.
