Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

As we head into Memorial Day weekend and our thoughts turn to summer fun, we'd like to invite you to join us for two exciting programs we'll be hosting in the community during the summer months.

  • Join friends, neighbors and library staff for a monthly book discussion on the BAYarts campus. Held on the porch of the Fuller House on Fridays from 10-11 a.m., the discussion will include the following books: June 12, "Euphoria" by Lily King; July 10, "Us" by David Nicholls; and Aug. 7, "The Interestings" by Meg Wolitzer
  • Cooling off at the pool? Splash in for some quick storytime fun at the 2 p.m. rest period! Monday and Tuesday afternoons from June 8 to Aug. 18, presented by the Children’s staff.ü


Thursday, May 21 (4 p.m.) Cookies and Books – Children in grades 3-4 are invited to enjoy cookies as we discuss a good book. Copies of the book will be available one month before the discussion.

Storytimes: Caregivers and their children are invited to enjoy rhymes, songs, fingerplays, books and stories together. No registration is required.

  • Monday, June 1 (9:30 a.m.) Toddler Storytime – ages 19-35 months.
  • Tuesday, June 2 (9:30 a.m.) Toddler Storytime – ages 19-35 months.

  • Thursday, June 4 (7 p.m.) Family Storytime – children of all ages


Monday, June 1 (7 p.m.) Unveiling the Victorians – Discover what life was really like beyond Charles Dickens and Downton Abbey. Fads, foods, medicine, scandals, leisure activities and household hazards will be shared in an entertaining fashion.

Wednesday, June 3 (7 p.m.) Cleveland's East Fourth Street – Short in distance but long in memories, East Fourth Street’s story has mirrored downtown Cleveland’s dynamic rise, decline and rebirth. Once the home to Cleveland’s opera house, central markets, and five and dime stores, Fourth Street fell into disrepair in the second half of the 20th century. Relive the stories and follow its renaissance as one of the city’s most popular destinations. Join us as author Alan Dutka presents his book, "East Fourth Street: The Rise, Decline and Rebirth of an Urban Cleveland Street." A book sale and signing will follow the presentation. This program is sponsored in collaboration with the Bay Village Historical Society.

Please register to attend the programs online at cuyahogalibrary.org, call us at 440-871-6392, or stop in to the library at 502 Cahoon Road and register with a librarian.
