Upcoming programs at Bay Village branch library

This year commemorates 75 years since H.A. Rey's classic tale "Curious George" was published. This curious monkey has been entertaining children through books and television ever since. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of this beloved classic, children ages 3-7 and their caregivers are invited to join us at the Bay Village branch library on Monday, June 27, at 6:45 p.m. for a Curious George celebration. We'll have stories, activity stations and fun!

On Wednesday, June 22, 6 p.m., join your friends, neighbors and library staff for a scoop of yummy Mitchell's ice cream at our annual ice cream social. Enjoy your tasty treat and the cool musical stylings of the Desmond and Molly band.
