Upcoming Events

Library closed, but E-books still available

Approx. May 31, 2020

In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all 41 Library locations are closed to the public until further notice (effective Friday March 14). Library leadership will be assessing the closure on a weekly basis.

While you wait, you can still read and stream on a device at home. Under the "E-Branch" tab, or at https://www.cincinnatilibrary.org/eBranch/, there is a host of information on how you can access library materials virtually, and for free.

By creating an account on your service of choice (e.g., streaming at Hoopla / hoopladigital.com), you can stream movies, read e-books, or perform research.

Paddlefest 2020

7am to midday Aug 01, 2020

Riverfront locations

Cincinnati's annual Paddlefest begins on the Ohio River at 7am on Saturday, August 1!

Once again, paddlers can register for one of two races (the full 9-mile course, or the 4.2-mile "Race To The Roebling"). Not a racer or prefer to take in the sights in a more leisurely way? Join the larger casual paddlers' group on the 9-mile course.

Put-in is at Schmidt Recreation Complex (2944 Humbert Avenue), take-out is at Gilday Riverside Park (3540 Southside Avenue); you can also view the colorful procession of boats from anywhere in between!
