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.

Tuesday, June 9 (10 a.m.) Hot Summer Reads – Join us to find out what's new or discover older favorites that you might want to read this summer. Presented by the Bay Village adult services librarian and sponsored in collaboration with Dwyer Memorial Senior Center.

Friday, June 12 (10 a.m.) BAYarts Book Discussion – Join friends, neighbors and library staff for a summer book discussion on the BAYarts Campus. The discussion will be held on the porch of the Fuller House on specific Fridays from 10-11 a.m. This month join us to discuss "Euphoria" by Lily King.
