On the Road To Reading
On the Road to Reading is an early literacy program designed to encourage parents and caregivers to read 1,000 books to their child before they start kindergarten to help develop important early literacy skills and develop a lifelong love of reading and books! Broken into 100 book milestones, the Library will celebrate your child’s reading achievements as you move along the Road to Reading!
Peace & Friendship
Colorful flags graced the walls of Cary Library at the reception marking the inaugural Eric Jordan Moskow Memorial Fund event. The flags, depicting Peace and Friendship, were designed and created by the youth of Lexington, under the guidance of local artist and educator Heny Taraz. The flags will be on display for a month and the public is invited to visit the library to view them and learn more about this project.
An Afternoon of Chinese Culture 2017
On January 14, 2017, Lexington celebrated the Year of the Rooster in a Saturday afternoon program offered by the Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL).
Nearly 1,000 people of all ages were treated to dance and musical performances, tasted a variety of Chinese teas, learned to cook dumplings and spring rolls, practiced the art of calligraphy, and so much more. It was a splendid day of community pride and cultural sharing!
Fairy Tale Ball 2016
On April 15, 2016, some pint-sized public safety officers, a pirate or two, and a plethora of princesses were just a few of the many guests who attended the second annual Fairy Tale Ball. Attendees enjoyed games, crafts and snacks while a guest DJ was rolling out the big hits. Merriment ensued as the grown-ups joined the young party guests on the dance floor!
The Ball was thanks in great measure to the support of the folks who contribute to our Annual Appeal. It is through their generosity that these fairy tales dreams are able to come true. We are grateful to Indian Americans of Lexington (IAL), Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL), and the Lexington High School Origami Club for sponsoring the many activities at the event.
Thank you to members of the Friends of Cary Memorial Library, the Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB), and our high school volunteers whose time and energy spent setting up, running stations and cleaning up was crucial to the success of the evening.
