This drink-tasting teen program attracted an audience of all ages. Teen Librarian Fiona Reimers prepared three different drinks from around Asia in honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. She made a Nam Dang-Mu Pan from Thailand, a mango lassi from India, and a Salty Lime Soda from Vietnam and explained history and some cultural context for each. Plenty of Asian cookbooks were on display for customers to take home. All of the ingredients were generously provided by the Friends of the Library, which contributed to a happy audience who got to sample each drink and have a second or third helping.
