Best Library Where Talking is Encouraged

The Play Library, a place that felt straight out of the Tom Hanks movie Big, wasn't kidding around about providing everyone with access to high quality toys and games. The all-ages lending and activity space that People's Liberty grantee, Julia Fischer operated last year in the philanthropy's Over-the-Rhine storefront, returned March 15, 2017, just a few blocks away. And that makes us want to shout - which is totally okay in a library where being quiet is not the idea. Fischer, a former toy designer, will again be stocking hundreds of playthings as well as planning 21+ game nights and family fun times that encourage everyone to make-believe and make new friends. YAY!!
