After-School Support at Cleveland Public Library

Get Ready for Sh

School bells are ringing again in Cleveland. To help children and families, Cleveland Public Library is offering resources and programs to enhance the learning experience, encourage reading, and spark curiosity.


Struggling with schoolwork? We’ve got your back! Homework can be frustrating for both students and parents, and that’s why the library’s homework help centers provide a haven for students seeking assistance in various subjects. Staffed by knowledgeable tutors and educators, these centers offer personalized support that can make a significant difference in a student’s understanding and confidence.

Afterschool Meals with Kids Cafe

Learning and studying can make kids hungry. Kids’ Café is back in session. In partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, the Library will provide nutritious meals for children up to age 18. Families should call their local branch for meal delivery times.


After school fun starts at the Library. Students can show their talents in a multitude of arts programs. From theatre to dance, singing and art, Cleveland Public Library has a program for children of all ages thanks to our community partners including Art Therapy Studio. Families can also visit their favorite neighborhood branch for take-and-make activities and crafts.


Ready for a break from studying? We can help with that too. Our digital collection offers movies, music, and other streaming entertainment.
