Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library

The approach of fall means that everyone is busy with school, sports, vacation getaways and indoor and outdoor projects at home. The library is the place to find books that will help you with those, and it’s also a place to get away from it all and have some fun! Come to the following programs and stay to check out a book or two. We’re here to help you find just the one you need!

ADULT DEPARTMENT

Thursday, Sept. 19 (7 p.m.) CLEVELAND POLICE MUSEUM: PROGRESSIVES TO DEPRESSION – The Cleveland Police Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the department, which was formed in 1866. Learn about the history, artifacts and documents from the Progressive Era to the Depression.

Tuesday, Sept. 24 (7:30 p.m.) SWINGING BAVARIANS – Come and enjoy this 12-piece Bavarian swing band that plays authentic German polka waltzes and music from the ‘40s and ‘50s.

TEEN DEPARTMENT

Thursday, Sept. 26 (6-8 p.m.) READER BOOTCAMP – For grades 1-3. Parents and their children who are struggling with reading skills are invited to a pizza dinner and a two-part program of information and fun.

Then, families participate together. This is a four-week program on Thursday evenings.

Thursday, Sept. 26 (3:30 p.m.) JUNIOR ENGINEERING – For ages 8-12. Bring your ideas and imagination! Get together once a month with other students and have fun creating all kinds of structures.
