Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library
Happy Summer Break to all students and teachers! Although it’s time away from the schedule of school, the days seem to quickly fill with many activities. Be sure to include the Bay Village Library in your travels to those activities. Find the perfect book for the pool, that trip, or just relaxing at home.
Students need to maintain their reading skills over the summer and visits to the library make that fun. Join us for the many programs for all ages, play the Summer Reading Game and stop in to browse the collection. The ultimate prize is the lifelong joy of reading!
