The answer is guessed from a word, poem or phrase. At the same time, test yourself on how well you know about the Lunar New Year and the Asian Library. You will receive a gift if you get the answers correct!

Yut Nori Game
Yut Nori is a traditional board game played in Korea, especially during the Lunar New Year. It includes a board (malpan), four wooden sticks (yut) and small tokens (yunmal). Yut sticks are cast to determine how far a token can advance, and the score is determined by counting the sticks that are over, and those that are up. Join us for this fun game in Room 616 at Asian Library!

Pocket of Luck
All visitors to the library will receive a pocket of luck (while quantities last)!

The 2018/19  Learning Initiatives for Rural and Northern BC (LIRN BC) call for community submissions is now open.

The deadline is Friday, February 23, 2018.

 

Early and different this year

We are seeking more “organic” community-focused requests, without imposing a pre-determined list of available workshops.


Learning Initiatives for Rural and Northern BC (LIRN BC) is a collaborative approach to building on the capacities of rural, remote and Northern British Columbian communities. LIRN BC is listed as a project of the BC Rural Network, established in 2004.

The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre is proud to partner through LIRN BC with government and non-government organizations to provide and facilitate workshops to promote community learning and collaboration in rural and northern communities.

LIRN BC can bring trainers and facilitators to your community to deliver a learning event for residents.

The annual call for “Expressions of Interest” (EOI) occurs each year.  In 2018 the timing and structure of asking for applications has changed.

 

In responding to the call for EOIs, applicants are asked to tell us about your community and its challenges, and identify workshop topics that will help your community move forward. If your agency is selected, you will be contacted by a LIRN BC partner who will work with you to design and deliver a learning event that meets the needs of your community. Successful applicants would be expected to provide publicity support, venue and refreshments.

The current LIRN BC partners are:

  • Association of Neighbourhood Houses BC (ANHBC)
  • BC Healthy Communities (PlanH Program)
  • UBC Library, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre
  • Leave Out Violence (LOVE) Society of BC
  • PeerNetBC
  • Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC BC)
