The Highland Public Library is excited to announce a Boba Tea Demonstration with Friends Corner on Friday, May 12 at 1 p.m. This program is filling fast, with only 17 seats left, so be sure to register soon!
May is Asian-Pacific Month, and Friends Corner is offering a unique way to celebrate the amazing cultures and people of the region. Boba tea is a popular Taiwanese drink made with tea, milk, and chewy tapioca balls. Friends Corner’s special recipe is sure to delight, and the demonstration is a great opportunity to learn about Asian-Pacific culture and sample a delicious drink. The tasting will also include Sago’t Gulaman, a local Filipino beverage made of tapioca pearls, water, brown sugar, gulaman, and vanilla, and Turon (Banana Fritters), a Philippine snack made of thinly sliced banana dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper, and fried till the wrapper is crisp.
In addition to the Boba Tea Demonstration, the library is hosting an Art Exhibit and Reception for the Highland Central School District on May 13 from 12-2 p.m. Meet the talented artists from the district and enjoy a bake sale.
The library also reminds patrons to sign up for the waiting list for Learning American Mahjong and to make sure they have a library card to participate in programs. Additionally, Hoopla Bonus Borrows are back for the month of May, allowing patrons to check out any of the selected titles with no borrows toward their account.
