The library is celebrating its 8th annual Indian Holi Festival in cooperation with Rutgers Indian Graduate Student Association, South Asian Total Health Initiative (SATHI) and Kalyanni Performing Arts. Please join us with the whole family for a fun filled and colorful celebration of the Indian Festival of colors, music, dance, henna, and delicious Indian food. After the performances, weather permitting, there will be color play (throwing dry colors) on the front lawn of the library. If you wish to participate in the Holi color play, please make sure to wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Please know you won't be allowed back in the building after color play.
