How do you Hygge? Try it yourself at the Simsbury Public Library when we will be ‘Bringing Hygge to Our Community’ in a shared program. The Simsbury and Canton Public Libraries join together to bring the Danish cultural phenomenon of Hygge—roughly translated as “coziness”– to the Farmington Valley.

For our shared get-together, we welcome Hanne Nordby, a native of Denmark and resident of the Farmington Valley, who will try to describe and explain the life-value and ritual-like quality of Hygge. We will then move to the library’s fireplace area for our convivial experience. Soup, salad, bread and cookies for participants are included. Of course, the atmosphere requires candles! The program will be held in the Simsbury Public Library Program Room (4:30-5:00) and Upper Level Fireplace Area (5:00-6:30).

Registration is required and space is limited. Simsbury patrons should register through the Simsbury Public Library at 860-658-7663 x4 or www.simsburylibrary.info. For more information for Canton participants, please call 860-693-5800, email bvanness@libraryconnection.info or visit www.cantonpubliclibrary.org.

Funding for this program is made possible by the Canton Public Library and the Friends of the Simsbury Public Library. Free to participants.
