Lunar New Year Recommendations from Dublin City Libraries

Dublin City Libraries

Immerse yourself in the history and traditions of the Lunar New Year, and learn about how the holiday is celebrated in different countries. To celebrate the Year of the Rabbit (and Cat), Dublin City Libraries have put together a list of their favourite Lunar New Year titles, with tales for all the family to enjoy. You can find and reserve the book you want online and collect from a library of your choosing. If you don’t have a library card, why not contact your local library this Lunar New Year and they will help you to join.
