May 27, 2014 - Ft. Thomas, Kentucky – We at Blue Marble Books are so excited for our 35th anniversary in June that we are dedicating the first two weeks of June to celebrate it! We have quite a few exciting events planned, but please note that some of the events require a reservation, so plan accordingly as we have limited space.

In addition to the book readings, we will have a guess the number of marbles and prize drawing on each Saturday (June 7th and 14th) at 4:00 p.m. Throughout each week, we will have cloth bag, bookmark, and book giveaways.
You may have noticed there is a trolley in front of the store. It's a blast from the past! Our building served as the turnaround point for the #11 trolley from Cincinnati to Fort Thomas and back. As such, you are invited to travel down memory lane with us. We will have a memory book in the store in which you can write about your childhood memories of riding on the #11 trolley.
Finally, we've been renovating the Secret Garden (backyard), and we invite you to check it out. There are several cool features: a pergola, a mathematical maze of trails through the garden, and animals and fish to spot along the way.
We are looking forward to celebrating with you! It is because of our customers and community that we have been in business for 35 years, and we look forward to the many wonderful years ahead.
