Shakespeare had the concept of gender bending down to an art form more than 400 years ago. "Twelfth Night" explores gender confusion when a girl disguises herself as a man to be near the count she adores - only to be pursued by the woman he loves.

Those who wish to attend are asked to register beforehand on the library website.

The library website also has information on the upcoming "Ancient Olympics, An Armchair Art Tour," coming up from 7 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July, 19; and musical family fun, "Tromp Through the Swamp," with singer and guitarist Tom Sieling, scheduled for 7 to 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, July 21. Preregistration is requested for the Olympics presentation, but the public can just drop in for Sieling's performance without registering.
