On Display this Month at the East Brunswick Public Library

January 15, 2014 at 1:27 PM

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Visit the East Brunswick Public Library this month for a paper cutting display titled “Imagine That.”

Hou-Tien Cheng is a man who observes the commonplace with an artist’s eye. He can take an ordinary piece of paper, and with a few folds and snips, it transforms into designs that leap off the page and into the imagination.

In addition to the display cases, The Friends of the Library’s work will be honored with a wall display. It is the Friends of The Library’s dedication and support that enables it to transform vision into reality with more and better programs, services and collections.

The play opens with three children and then a chorus singing “In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,” a melancholy tune that conjures visions of Swansea, a village in Wales,  with “fallen snow on ...
