Come and visit our library which boasts over 18,000 Japan-related items. Our collection features a range of material including fiction, non-fiction, manga, DVDs, music CDs and extensive language resources.
Hina Dolls Display (February through mid March)
Please come and see our full-size hina doll set displayed in the Library. The doll set represents the Emperor, Empress and Imperial court attendants in their traditional costumes, and is the ornamental feature for the doll festival on March 3, which is a special time to pray for the growth and happiness of girls in Japan.
Bring your children for a fun session of storytelling and craft-making at our library. We will feature Hina Matsuri (doll festival) in our storytime and display our seven-tier doll set. Please don’t miss this rare opportunity of viewing the authentic doll set outside Japan.
