Celebrate Summer Learning Day with special Library programs

Summer Learning Day is an annual national advocacy day highlighting the importance of keeping kids learning, safe and healthy every summer. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County invites everyone to stop by any Library location Thursday, July 14, to make a Summer Learning button and to take part in special Summer Learning Day programs at select branches:

  • 10:30 a.m. — Tour of the Universe with the Cincinnati Observatory at the Main Library in the Children’s Learning Center

  • 1 p.m. — Summer Day with the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati at the Oakley Branch

Where did all the bees go? There is a shortage of honey, and Queen Bee needs to find all her workers. Journey with us through the summer months and discover the reason why all the bees are disappearing. Presented by ArtReach: A Division of The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati

  • 3 p.m. — Zoo on the Move with the Cincinnati Zoo at the Westwood Branch
