Are you looking for fun ways to spend your free time during the 4th of July holiday? Come celebrate at the library! 

Although we are closed on Independence Day, we have plenty of activities planned at our libraries. At any of our 73 locations you will find a variety of free, entertaining and enlightening programs fit for everyone—from activities designed to spark your creativity (art classes, knit and crochet, STEAM) to programs that will get you moving (musical performances, Zumba, Yoga). And of course, lots of storytimes, author visits, and cultural programs.

Here are some events we’re sure you’ll enjoy this 4th of July weekend.
