Trick or Treat at the Library!

Witch's Feet

Where: All BCPL Locations
When: October 31 from 6 to 8 p.m.

All library locations will be open for Trick-or-Treating on Monday, Oct. 31 from 6-8 p.m. If you prefer to Trick or Treat in your neighborhood, use us as your back-up plan if it rains. If you prefer a one-stop indoor location in a safe, well-lit, weather-controlled environment, we’re here for you, too. Parents, it's up to you to bring the candy and the kids! We'll have tables set up where you can hand out candy.

Please note: The Library will hand out bookmarks and pencils. Parents must bring the candy.

Native American Heritage Celebration

Where: Main Library
When: November 5 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Experience Native American singing, drumming, and dancing with the Southern Singers Drum Group in Meeting Room ABC. This group is led by drum keeper, Mark Banks, and was led by his father, Jesse, before him.

In the Children's Activity Room, staff will lead children in creating shake drums and pinch pots, a traditional form of clay sculpting.

On the first floor, Battaglia Deli and Cafe will offer special Native American dishes while, under the dome, Brian Miller will sing, play the flute, and share stories. Brian's heritage is Quawpaw and Cherokee, but he was adopted into the Olgala Lakota nation. He is a sacred fire chief for his tribe and a traditional pow-wow dancer.

In addition, explore a tipi exhibit by Traveling Tipi Village on the library's lawn, and watch a flint knapping demonstration by the Anthropology Department of NKU.
