Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

It looks like the nice weather is finally getting here – at least for now! Be sure to make time in your schedule for a library visit to find the perfect book to read or listen to during your day. Stop in to check out books you’ll need for those spring activities from gardening to cleaning to home improvement. Students: Spring Break is coming up but don’t take a vacation from reading. Come and browse the shelves to find the perfect book or magazine to read for fun. And speaking of fun, join us for the following programs for all ages! There will be dancing, a super hero day, and even a dog will stop by for a visit with his author friend. Please join us!
