World Origami Days span October 24-November 11. Wonder why it is 2 1/2 weeks long? October 24 is the birthdate of Lillian Oppenheimer, the founder of the first origami group in America and was chosen as the date for American Origami Day. November 11 is the date on which Japan celebrates their Origami Day. In order to unify the celebrations, OrigamiUSA created World Origami Days.
So why not try your hand at some origami creations? The Library has tons of books on origami for people of all skill levels, so why not give it a shot? I will even though I usually can’t even manage a proper crane.
