    We are proud to join the ranks of many storied Cleveland institutions by marking the 100th anniversary of our Public Administration Library (PAL). The celebration will take place on Wednesday, December 12th at 12:00 p.m. at PAL, located in Cleveland City Hall, 601 Lakeside Avenue, Suite 100.

    “We are excited to be celebrating the anniversary of PAL,” says Felton Thomas, Director of CPL. “PAL provides not only reference and informational materials to city government officials and employees, but it also  provides the same level of service to the public that is synonymous with the service that CPL is proud to provide at all of its branches.” 

    Located in Cleveland City Hall, PAL is one of the oldest municipal libraries in the United States, having among its collection resources on city planning, public health, community and economic development, municipal law, and parks and recreation. In addition to being the official repository for city publications and reports, PAL houses the most complete collection of material on Cleveland city government available anywhere. From municipal ordinances and city codes, to city planning documents and state and federal regulations, PAL has been an invaluable resource to city officials.

    The celebration begins at noon with music and refreshments, and is open to the public.
