Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Summer is in full swing at the Bay Village Branch with events and programs for all! There is still plenty of time to participate in the Summer Reading Game which is for adults and youth of all ages. Register online at www.cuyahogalibrary.org, select an avatar, decide on your reading goal minutes and you are all set! Just start reading and add your minutes online as you progress. Any questions, please call us at 440-871-6392. If you prefer to use a traditional game board, stop in the library to pick one up and get it stamped along with a raffle entry each time you come in. 

Look for the library table at Bay Days on July 2 and 3; stop to say hello and make a craft! The library will be closed July 4-6 for the Independence Day Weekend.
