News Community Jackson library hosts Kituwah Academy

The Jackson County Public Library recently hosted the first and second grades of the Kituwah Academy in Cherokee for a program about the Chinese New Year.

Library staff members Jenifer Ross and Sally Salyards (pictured above) read stories, made New Year Chinese Dragons, and had a parade with the children.

Using the Cherokee Language goals of the Kituwah Academy, the library staff created a handout in the Cherokee Syllabary and included some of the Cherokee words in the story and craft activity.

This program was co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library. The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva is part of the Fontana Regional Library system (http://www.fontanalib.org/).
