UPDATE: New Main Hub Location at Imagination Station

1 Discovery Way | $5 After 5pm

The Main Library will be closing for the remainder of the 2018 Art Loop season as they embark on exciting new renovations. The Main Hub will now be located at the Imagination Station. For the Haunted Harvest, visitors can create and play with Boo Bubbles and Oobleck, a strange slime that reacts to sound and force in surprising ways. You can take advantage of any available street parking or nearby parking garages. We suggest the Promedica Depo Parking Garage (corner of Summit & Jefferson - $5 fee).
