Join the pack and jump with joy into the Year of the Dog with Auckland Libraries.

Learn about the Lunar New Year and this clever, courageous, lively sign of the zodiac at more than 130 fun activities running at Auckland Libraries from 12 February until 25 February.

Performances and classes for all ages will be on offer at libraries across the Auckland region to celebrate Lunar New Year; from photo competitions, calligraphy and making fortune cookies, to bilingual storytelling and many styles of dancing and tai chi.

“Everyone’s welcome to join us at Auckland Libraries to celebrate Lunar New Year, a festival of peace and renewal. Come along to learn more about Asian cultures and build harmony and understanding across our communities,” says May Chen, Auckland Libraries Senior Library Assistant.

Auckland Libraries’ Lunar New Year events are free, unless otherwise stated. Head to for the full list of Lunar New Year activities.
