Did you know that the Main Library is “America's Busiest Library”? It's true! According to a Public Library Association statistical report, American's Busiest Library is right here in downtown Cincinnati. To celebrate the occasion and all the exciting changes that have taken place at the Main Library recently, we're throwing a party! Join us on Saturday, April 18 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Meet former baseball stars from the Negro Leagues, enjoy jazz with the Mike Wade Quintet, get your photo taken with animals from the Cincinnati Zoo, and much more! Find out about all the fun activities and prizes including two MP3 players and a kid’s bicycle courtesy of the Friends of the Public Library).


Much of what is “common knowledge” about Charles Darwin
isn’t actually true. He did not discover evolution on the Galapagos Islands; he did not keep his theory secret for 20 years; he was not trying to undermine religion; and he was not an atheist. On Friday, April 17 at 4:00 p.m., Dr. John van Wyhe of Cambridge University will reveal what Darwin really did and said during Charles Darwin: The True Story at the Main Library’s Huenefeld Tower Room (800 Vine Street, 3rd Floor). The program is co-sponsored by the Library Programs Fund and the University of Cincinnati in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his famous work, On the Origin of Species.
