Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Many of you may be utilizing the Bay Village pool to cool off and enjoy some summer fun. On Monday and Tuesdays join us there for our poolside storytime. Librarians from the Bay Village branch children's department will host a storytime during the 2 p.m. rest break. We hope to see you there!

Don't forget to stop by the branch library to stock up on reading materials for summer and mark your minutes read to earn prizes in our summer reading program, "Build a Better World."


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