Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Is your child entering kindergarten in a few weeks? Sign up for our two-session kindergarten readiness program on Wednesdays, Aug. 9 and 16, at 10 a.m. Children can brush up on some big-kid skills: using scissors, pasting, holding a pencil and more. Hands-on activity stations will be set up, so come ready to practice and explore! There will be different activities for the two sessions.


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

Join us at the Bay Village pool for poolside storytimes. The poolside storytimes will be held Mondays and Tuesdays at 2 p.m. We hope to see you there this summer!

Saturday, Aug. 5 (2 p.m.) Tye-Dye Fun – Tweens, teens and adults: Come celebrate the end of the 2017 Summer Reading Program and learn to tie-dye T-shirts and totes with cool patterns and vibrant colors using Sharpies! All materials will be provided. Weather permitting, this program will take place outdoors. Sponsored by the Friends of the Bay Village Library.


Tuesdays, July 18, August 8 and 29 (7 p.m.) It's All About You – This three-part series led by Nicholette Leanza will empower participants to live more fully as they take control over their mental and emotional health and wellbeing. Topics will include letting go of emotional baggage, mastering your anxiety, dealing with emotional vampires, overcoming depression, maintaining happy relationships and rewiring your brain for a new you.

Saturday, Aug. 12 (1 p.m.) Blackout Poetry – Calling all poets! Armed with just a Sharpie and your own creative instincts, find hidden meaning and create new works of art with blackout poetry. Combining poetry, art and recycling, blackout poetry is created by blacking out a body of existing text, leaving only a few select words. When only these words are visible, a brand new story is created. Sponsored by the Friends of the Bay Village Branch Library.
