Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

Books make wonderful and appreciated gifts. "Great Books for Kids," Cuyahoga County Public Library’s annual list of the very best recently published books for kids of all ages, is a great source to find books to give as gifts to the children in your life this holiday season. Stop by the library to pick up the expanded Winter Program Guide to see what books have been featured on our list this year.

Our library will be closed on Dec. 24, 25, 31, and Jan. 1, but our digital collection is always open, so don't forget to browse our book, magazine, music and movie downloadables.
