A Carrico patron sent us a lovely thank you note after attending our first Arts & Culture event of the season.
Barbara Martin was one of 260 music fans who enjoyed a free concert from Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra’s Beatles tribute, The Fab Five, on Friday, March 4.
Barbara wrote, “Tonight I shared a wonderfully enjoyable Beatles program at the Fort Thomas Branch with a room full of people of all ages. I attend many library events and this was the best one since Johnny Cash’s son performed at the Newport Branch.”
Thank you for your lovely note, Barbara.

I attended a Macy’s Artwave program on February 27th with my mom. This program was put on by the Forget-Me-Not Historical Dance Company. I didn’t even know there was such a group!
I’m not a huge fan of dance, but I do appreciate the art of dance and all the hard work that goes into it. My mom pointed out this program was going to showcase historical dances performed at President William Howard Taft’s Inaugural Ball in 1909. Being a history lover, with an interest in U.S. Presidents, I thought this would be an interesting program to attend.
I have visited the Taft boyhood home in Cincinnati a few times and liked how the program related our 27th president. I was right. The dancers, decked out in period costumes, performed four dances that were used at President Taft’s Inauguration celebration.
I had no idea that period dances were something that could be researched, studied and performed. I was tired just watching them dance!
It was very interesting to see how the public danced in 1909, compared to today. I’m glad I attended this program, as it gave me a broader perspective of ArtsWave and the different variations of art that they support.
I’ve been a library supported for sixteen years and appreciate the knowledge that I’ve gained just by visiting the Campbell County Public Library. I look forward to what’s next at the library!

We enjoyed a wonderful season of Arts and Culture. We plan to be back in 2017.

My son, Buddy Fillhardt, absolutely loves visiting with Wilma, the rescue dog when she takes her appearances at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch for the program Puppy Tales.
One thing my son doesn’t like to do as much is to read, but he will read several books during his time with Wilma, as Wilma loves to be read to! A beautiful Saturday afternoon and my son’s main agenda is to go to the library and participate in the Puppy Tales program.
Wilma ‘s owner, Linda Miller, and Joyce Emery, Children’s Programmer at Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch, really go out of their way to make this program a success. We have so much fun with it.
My son likes the program so much, he even uses the library’s app to register himself for the next session or for other programs he is interested in attending. He is getting a great overview of how useful the app can be, while learning more about technology.
