The Brooklyn Public Library celebrates the Chinese New Year on Jan. 24 with a day of arts and cultural activities. The event will feature a reading by Brooklyn author and illustrator Kam Mak ["My Chinatown: One Year in Poems" (HarperCollins, 2001)], as well as crafts and entertainment for children ages 6 to 12. It runs from 11 am to 1 pm.

(A lion dance from the 2000 celebration at the Central Library is pictured.)

From 2 pm to 4 pm, Ba Ban Chinese Music Society will perform the Chinese opera, "Monkey King," and there will be martial arts, dance, magic and music performances.

At 4 pm, there will be a screening of Zhang Yimou’s film "Not One Less," about a young teacher in a rural Chinese village and her heroic efforts to prevent any of her students from dropping out of her class. (The 1999 film is in Chinese with English subtitles.)

The events take place at the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. For more information, go to the Web site at
