In the Dark

Where: Main Library
When: June 1 to September 5

Boone County Public Library will reveal what thrives beneath the soil, under the sea, in the shadows of night, and within other dark environments! This interactive touring exhibit, produced by the Cincinnati Museum Center, will allow you to enter some of the world's areas with little or no light. In the Dark includes sophisticated life-like dioramas, fiberglass models, informational panels, and hands-on components such as computer games, mechanical displays, and chemical experiments. All are designed to help you discover how animals, plants, and people have adapted to dark environments. Please go to our blog post for more information about In the Dark.
