Celebrate the Chinese ‘Year of the Rat’ at the library

Submitted by Cindy Pawlowski

The Madelyn Helling Library is celebrating the “Year of the Rat” from 2 to 4 p.m. on January 25. The rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The rat tricked the ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of ox, becoming first.
