Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library
School is back in session and routines are switching back to homework and bedtimes. There are many opportunities to attend programs for all ages as we move into fall. Come in and ask us about new books, find your favorite author or get a book to help with outdoor projects.
We’re here to help students do research or just find that perfect book to read. Stop in as you go to sporting events, or just as a well-deserved break. Storytimes began on Sept. 3. We look forward to seeing you!
