Children's Theatre of Cincinnati presents "Hansel and Gretel"

Something mysterious is happening in the woods, and Hansel and Gretel are hot on the trail. This musical romp features a strange old lady in the woods who happens to be part giant, part ogre, part elf and part troll. Could she be a witch too? Only Hansel and Gretel will find out! Follow our sleuths as they sing, dance and discover the hidden truth about the dear little old lady in the gingerbread cottage! This wonderful offering is presented by the Children's Theatre of Cincinnati as part of their ArtReach program. Reservations are required, limited and free of charge.

Teen Lock In

Once a year, after the library has closed and everyone has gone home, teens in grades 6-12 take over the library for an evening of games, mystery and activities. Area teens are welcome to join the fun solving a mystery, playing Minute to Win It, taking part in the "You Can't Do That in the Library" relay race, and enjoying pizza and pop. Rekindle some Summer Reading friendships and get to know other teens while having fun after hours at the library. Registration is required and limited for this free event.
