We hope you've been enjoying the lovely weather of summer so far and have had the opportunity to get some summer reading done. The Cuyahoga County Public Library summer reading program – "Ready. Set. Read!" – is still going strong, and it's not too late to log those reading minutes before the Aug. 16 deadline. As usual, we have some great programs coming up at the Bay branch. Check out our Moon Party on Aug. 4 or stop by one of our weekly storytimes, before they go on hiatus for the month of August.
