The fireworks are just days away, so plan your Independence Day festivities in advance. This year, the Fourth has inspired many upcoming events at your local library branches across the Cincy area. Patriotic crafts spanning from lotions to wooden trivets can be made in varying locations. Come prepared for a montage of red, white and blue paints, papers and sparkles, and leave prepared for any and all of your kids’ upcoming Fourth of July parties.
