The Japan-America Society of Wyoming (JASWY) will celebrate Children's Day on Saturday, April 28th, 2018, at the Albany County Public Library from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

This JASWY Children's Day marks the eleventh year that JASWY has partnered with the Library to sponsor the event. We will also be assisted by the Laramie High School Japanese Culture Club. The Children's Day celebration will include the following activities led by local volunteers: reading of Japanese folk tales, learning fun Japanese songs in Japanese and English, Learning Japanese dance, Origami (paper folding of a Kabuto (helmet)), creating head bands, crafting a turtle, and tasting Japanese foods (cookies, rice crackers, nori, squid etc). Children under age 8 are encouraged to attend. The event is free.

As part of this event, JASWY has placed some interesting Japanese items in the display case at the Albany County Public Library from April 2 until April 28th. This event is co-sponsored by the Albany County Public Library.
