Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library

We’re heading into the perfect weather to always have a book at your side. It will soon be getting dark earlier with the time change coming up on Nov. 4, and any time is a good time to enjoy a book. Check out the many displays and the New Book shelves, or ask us for recommendations. We’re here to help! Please join us for these  upcoming programs – we have a busy and exciting November planned! This is also a good time of year to request toys from the Toy Library. New and different toys will keep your little ones occupied and interested, and they can be a wonderful surprise to have on hand when the play group comes to your house! Not familiar with the Toy Library? Ask us – we’ll show you how easy it is to use this resource! We look forward to seeing you at the Bay Library – don’t be caught without a book!!
