Global Gathering Korea

By Maria Levetzow

Global Gathering Korea is a two-month celebration of the culture, heritage, and tradition of the Korean Peninsula.  Throughout September and October, the Bettendorf Public Library will feature programs and activities related to Korea and its people.  There will be displays of objects and art throughout the Library, as well as new library items available for checkout.  Our purpose is not only to enhance knowledge and understanding about the Korean Peninsula, but to respect and appreciate the diversity our neighbors with Korean roots bring to the community.  The program guide for Global Gathering Korea is available here, or view the Global Gathering Korea programs on our calendar of eventsSee all the new Library materials about Korea here. The Bettendorf Public Library expresses sincere thanks to the Bettendorf Library Foundation, Friends of the Bettendorf Library, area partners, cosponsors, and presenters for their generous financial support and participation in Global Gathering Korea.
