New Folk Tales from Old Japan @ Culver City Julian Dixon Library

The Friends of the Culver City Library are excited to announce that we will be doing a special presentation and children’s program, in-person at the library on Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Children’s Section.

Join us for a presentation of a handmade textile art piece for the Children’s Area featuring folk tales from around the world, including maneki-neko. To celebrate, bilingual author and illustrator Sunny Seki will read his book, The Tale of Lucky the Cat, a retelling of the traditional Japanese tale of how a toymaker’s kindness to an injured cat (maneki-neko) is repaid by good fortune.

For ages 5 – 12 with a parent or caregiver. Attendance is limited and advance registration is required. Registration opens 1 week before this program. To sign up, see library staff, or register online at and filter by location or event date.

Please see the Guidelines for Attendees during the registration process for more information.

This program is part of a celebration for a new wall hanging, created by the library stitchers. We hope you can join us for this amazing event. Space is limited, so sign up early!
