Khmer, Come All! ខ្មែរមកជួបជុំគ្នា!
The Long Beach Public Library will host Khmer, Come All – a program series celebrating the local Cambodian community featuring a variety of in-person programs at the Mark Twain Neighborhood Library (1401 E. Anaheim St.) and one virtual event. Each program will highlight different aspects of Cambodian culture, including history, food, craft traditions, a cultural workshop, and a film screening. Khmer, Come All will take place on select days beginning Saturday, November 5 through Saturday, December 3, 2022.
“One of our primary goals is to offer programs that are inclusive and make people of all backgrounds feel at home,” said Library Services Director Cathy De Leon. “Khmer, Come All will celebrate the history and heritage of the Cambodian community that is a vital part of the Long Beach experience.”
Khmer, Come All is made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities that produces, funds, creates and supports humanities-based projects and programs, eye-opening cultural experiences, and meaningful conversations.
