Library Holds Māori Art Bookmark Program

To help celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the La Cañada Flintridge Library will hold an in-person program for teens ages 13-17 on how to color a Maori art bookmark Tuesday, May 28, from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
The koru (Maori word for “loop”) is a spiral shape based on the unfurling silver fern frond of the ponga plant. Koru symbolizes new life, growth, strength and is an integral symbol in Maori art, carving and tattoos.
“Color your own Maori art bookmark with the supplies provided. You can use it in your “Lord of the Rings” books — after all, the movies were shot almost entirely in New Zealand!” the library said on its website.
All the art supplies will be provided. Attendance is limited, and advance registration is required. Every individual in a party, including kids, is asked to be registered. This will be used to save an individual’s spots in the program. There is no guaranteed availability for any unregistered attendees.
To register, visit lacountylibrary.org/event/10772535.
