Friday, November 3
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Day of the Dead (el Dia de Muertos) is a Mexican tradition to honor friends and families who have passed away. This is not a solemn holiday but a festive one to remember loved ones. The Library will set up an altar (ofrenda) with food, marigolds, sugar skulls and incense (not burning).
On Friday, we will join together for festivities. There will be crafts, face painting, food and dancing.
Everyone is welcome to place a photo of a loved one who has passed away this year on the ofrenda to remember them and celebrate their life. The ofrenda will be set up on November 1st.
You can bring in photos from November 1 – 3, during Library hours. You can take your photo home at anytime. The Library can hold your photo for you until you can come and pick it up.
