Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

As we head into the 2018, the staff at the Bay Village branch library would like to thank you for your patronage over the last year. 2017 was another great year for books, stop by and ask one of our librarians for recommendations of great reads you may have missed.

Over the holiday season, many of you may receive the gift of an e-reader. The Bay Village branch library offers a drop in and download program every Wednesday evening from 5:30-8:30 p.m. One of our librarians will sit with you and help you download one of the many titles available through the library.

We will be closed Dec. 24, 25, 31, and Jan. 1. Happy Holidays!
