Las Posadas is a religious observance celebrated in Mexico and parts of Central America. Loosely translated as “the lodging,” it is a nine-day reenactment of the journey taken by Joseph and Mary to find shelter before the birth of Jesus. This event will feature joyful singing, dance performances, refreshments, and a children’s lesson and craft session that will help them understand how people around the world celebrate the Christmas holiday in different ways.

Las Posadas son fiestas populares que se celebran durante los nueve días antes de la Navidad en México y otros países de América Central. Estas fiestas recuerdan el peregrinaje de María y José desde su salida de Nazaret hasta Belén, donde buscaron un lugar para alojarse y esperar el nacimiento del niño Jesús. ¡Ven a disfrutar esta celebración tradicional con una noche llenada de canto dichoso, espectáculos de baile, refrigerios y lecciones y manualidades para niños sobre cómo celebran la gente de todo el mundo la Navidad en maneras diferentes.

About the library

Considered to be one of the finest Carnegie Libraries in the West, this 8,900 square foot library has two levels. Since its opening in 1918, it has been an important part of city services to Westside residents. The Chapman Branch was completely renovated, including an updated HVAC, following the collapse of the roof during 1993. A major remodel of the basement level meeting space in 2002 resulted in a much improved children's area and expanded service and collection space for adults on the ground level. A small meeting room is available for public use, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library. Street parking is available to the south of the building, and an external book drop is located on the east side of the building for returning library materials after hours.
