Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library
The calendar just turned to May and I think it’s finally safe to say that spring has arrived! The flowers and flowering trees are beautiful and the buds on trees have appeared overnight, it seems. Storytimes end for the month of May beginning on May 6 so we can prepare for summer activities and visit the schools. We’re getting excited about our summer programs and of course, the Summer Reading Game! Details about the game and kick-off celebration will be coming soon! Until then, join us for these programs and to find a book that’s perfect for your needs. Yard work, spring repairs and dealing with the allergies that those flowers bring – we have the book for you!
Wednesday, May 1 (1:30 p.m.) WEDNESDAY BOOK DISCUSSION – Join us for a discussion of “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin.

This program is presented in collaboration with Dwyer Senior Center.
