Free, advance tickets are available at the Children’s Department Circulation Desk.

Members of the Robinson Ballet will perform at 7:45 p.m. a compilation of dances with athleticism, artistry, mood, movement, poetry, emotion, imagination and unbridled joy that the company calls “The Kitchen Sink.” The performance will be in the library’s Lecture Hall.
