Upcoming Events at the Bay Village Branch Library

It’s hard to believe that school is winding down for the year and we hope that everyone enjoys all of the activities that come with that. Congratulations and best wishes to graduates of all ages! Kids everywhere are looking forward to taking it easy and enjoying the time off. But the one thing that we DON’T want students to do is regress in their reading skills by not reading over the summer. And that’s where the Bay Library comes in! We have plenty of activities, specials, storytimes and, of course, books to keep everyone reading all summer long.


Thursday, June 6 (7 p.m.) THURSDAY EVENING BOOK DISCUSSION – Join us for a discussion of the book "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" by Rachel Joyce.

Tuesday, June 11 (10 a.m.) CONVERSATION WITH ELEANOR AND LUCRETIA – Eleanor Roosevelt and Lucretia Garfield meet over tea and discuss their paths to the White House and beyond. Discover how they dealt with marriage difficulties, mothers-in-law, children and politics. These two educated, intelligent women also examine their early self-esteem issues and how they grew beyond them into strong, independent and formidable widows.

Wednesday, June 12 (1 p.m.) WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON BOOK DISCUSSION – Join us for a discussion of the book "The Yellow Birds" by Kevin Powers.

Monday, June 17 (7 p.m.) ETSY 101 – Lori Paximadis from Cleveland Homemade will explain this e-commerce website focused on handmade and vintage items and share the four keys to Etsy success.

Monday, June 10 (1-4 p.m.) SUMMER READING KICKOFF WITH BOB THE BUILDER – Bring the whole family to our kick-off event and prepare to Build Your Brain! Bob the Builder will join us along with other activities and fun. Of course, don’t forget to register for the Summer Reading Game!

Tuesday, June 18 (2 p.m.) THE BUBBLE LADY – Pop into the library and be astonished and amused as Sue Durante creates acrobatic bubbles, bouncing bubbles, supersize bubbles and more!
