Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library

We hope everyone is back to normal after the storm and the time change. It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is fast approaching and the holiday busy-ness is about to begin. And that’s where the Bay Village Library comes in! Attend one of our storytimes or specials, or choose a book to relax with. Ask us about music and book CDs for any upcoming trips – we have them for all ages! If you’ll be travelling with little ones, we’ll help you find a lullaby CD for everyone to enjoy at the end of a long day. 

If the guests are coming to your house, check out a recipe book or a few toys from the Toy Library. We’ll close at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and will be closed on Thanksgiving, but the library will be open on Friday as usual. Make it a stop on your Friday shopping outing – everything is free at the library!
