Wednesday, Sept. 20 (3 p.m.) 3D Body Imagery – Grades 5-10: This workshop led by the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning will allow teens to use their bodies to create 2D and 3D images. Participants will discuss topics of interest and then identify words or shapes that portray those images.

The scanned images will be printed on Cuyahoga County Public Library's 3D printer. Registration required.

Wednesday, Oct. 4 (3 p.m.) Teen Zone – Grades 5 & up: Chill with something fun to do after school – gaming, art, movies, technology and more!


Tuesday, Sept. 19 (7 p.m.) NEO Public Policy Series: "Ohio Drug Price Relief Act" Ballot Issue – The Ohio Drug Price Relief Act is a citizen-initiated statute slated for the November ballot. It would require the state of Ohio to pay no more for prescription drugs than the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which has negotiated a discount of up to 40 percent. Is this a good idea? Panelists will include people on both sides of the issue.

Saturday, Sept. 23 (2 p.m.) History of Cleveland Botanical Garden – Go down memory lane with boathouses, books and the famous White Elephant sale. Archival photographs highlighting the Garden's illustrious past are presented along with highlights from the archives.

Tuesday, Sept. 26 (7 p.m.) Ohio Sports History: Ohio State Football – Join us for a mini-series based on three sports books by local authors.

Monday, Oct. 2 (6:30 p.m.) Keep Calm and Color On: Adult Coloring – Studies show that coloring can have a calming effect on the mind. Coloring pages from books designed especially for adults as well as pens, markers and pencils will be provided.

Saturday, Oct. 7 (2 p.m.) Escape Room: Phantom of the Opera – Erik has taken hostages at the Opera House. You are locked in the cellar/meeting room along with a group of other operagoers. You have 45 minutes to find the code and escape before the Opera House is destroyed.

Monday, Oct. 9 (7 p.m.) Beneath Cleveland: Lost Cemeteries of Cuyahoga County – Author William G. Krejci will discuss and sign copies of his book, "Buried Beneath Cleveland." As towns grew in Cuyahoga County during the late 1800s, many of its cemeteries were relocated to make room for urban sprawl. But not all of these graves made the journey. Discover the Revolutionary War veterans, famous scientists and illustrious dignitaries found beneath gas stations and grocery stores in this eerie history of Cuyahoga County’s forgotten dead.
