Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Many of us consult a meteorologist either on TV or online to help us determine how to plan for or dress for the day. What exactly does a meteorologist do, how do they forecast the weather, and what tips do they have for storm saftey? Greg Dee from WKYC's weather team will join us at 4 p.m on Wednesday, Sept. 17, to discuss meteorologists and weather prediction. Please register for this all ages event.
