Last night the ELI team and our awesome volunteers, Eleanor, Yun, Kelvin, and Charlie, celebrated Kwanzaa at the Bayview Library. Children and their families enjoyed the rhythmic sounds of African drums, joined in the lighting of the Kwanzaa candles, and made Kwanzaa wreaths and placemats with Jumpstart. The turn-out was fantastic -- we even had a first-time library visitor, 17-month-old Miracle! The night ended with the crowd playing Kwanzaa Bingo and chowing down on a delicious fried chicken dinner! Thanks to everyone who came and Happy Holidays! We hope to see you all, new friends and old, again in the new year!
