A Celebration of the Korean Culture
January through March 2014
The Village of Skokie and Niles Township is a community rich in diversity. Residents hail from many different countries and speak more than 90 languages and dialects. This exciting mixture of cultures offers an opportunity to build knowledge, awareness, and appreciation for all of our neighbors.
Five years ago, Niles Township High School District 219, Skokie Public Library, the Village of Skokie, the Holiday Inn North Shore/Skokie, and the Indian Community of Niles Township initiated a unique program called Coming Together in Skokie to explore in depth a different culture each year through reading and discussing a common book, and enjoying a host of other exciting activities. The event takes place during a six-week period from January through March. The first four projects showcased the Asian Indian, Filipino, Assyrian and Greek communities. Thousands of residents attended book sessions, lectures, dramas, and musical events for each celebration.
This year, we are celebrating the Korean people and Oakton Community College's events offered through the library incorporate educational and festive programming over the course of January - March.
You can find information about Korea in books, websites and journal articles. The library at Oakton Community College has many resources to help.
