Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library hosting Noon Years event tomorrow
JONESBORO, Ark- The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library will kick the new year off early tomorrow.
The children’s library will host their Noon Years party tomorrow.
Normally, they hold the event in person, due to the pandemic staff will stream it virtually on the library's Facebook page starting at 11:30 A.M.
Parents and children are encouraged to follow along at home but can pick their noon years take home kits from the library until tomorrow.
CCJPL youth services program coordinator Stephanie Sweeney gives a little insight of what people can expect
“So, we decided to have it in the middle of the day, and it teaches them about how different times of the world celebrate new year’s at different times. So, we usually watch the feed in Malaysia, which is twelve hours different from us," says Sweeney. "So, we can watch them celebrate their new year while we celebrate our new year here. We wanted to continue the tradition, but since we couldn’t gather together, we made take-home kits.”
The take-home kits include a crown, decorations, a DIY nose maker, and more.
