Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Let’s hope we’ve seen the last of the snow, especially as we get closer to welcoming spring on March 22! Spring-themed book displays are popping up all around the library – come and find your favorites. Storytimes continue through April so please join us for the ones that fit your schedule.

Don’t forget about the Toy Library – it has just what you need to get  your little ones through to the nice weather. Request them online – just like books – and they come directly to the branch for you, which is also where you’ll return them. Enjoy a new toy with your child for three weeks, then mix it up and choose another one! Ask us if you’re not familiar with it; we’ll be glad to show you how to request them!  

Please join us for the following programs and browse the collection during your visit. There’s a whole world waiting for you here!
