Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library

Will March come in like a lion or a lamb this year? I think we’d all agree that we’re ready for some lamb-like weather! We welcome spring this month, return to Daylight Savings Time on March 9, and generally get ready for all of the things that the promise of nice weather brings! Be sure to make the Bay Village library a stop during your day – we’ll help you find just what you’re looking for.

Home improvement ideas and spring gardening books are here ready to be checked out. Little ones getting cabin fever? Check out the Toy Library Notebook! Find a toy your child would like, and request it just like a book is requested. New toy for your child to try, no expense for you. Keep the Toy Library in mind for the next playdate at your house! The library has many programs for all ages and interests. Please register for the ones you’d like to attend. We look forward to seeing you!
