Connect to arts, culture, and your neighborhood branch at Cleveland Public Library during National Library Week, April 4 – 9.

“Cleveland Public Library is a cornerstone of the community,” said Felton Thomas, Jr., Executive Director and CEO of Cleveland Public Library. “From food and job support to legal help and skill-building classes, the Library is helping people connect to vital resources and services to enhance their lives and neighborhoods.”

During National Library Week, each Branch Library will host in-person and virtual programs and activities for the entire family. “There’s so much to discover with a Cleveland Public Library card,” said Dr. Tonya Briggs, Branch Manager of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Branch of Cleveland Public Library. “It’s an opportunity to get to know the Library staff and learn about the unique offerings at our branches.”

For a complete list of programs, visit cpl.org or call your favorite neighborhood branch. Whether sharing a favorite read on social media or finally dropping off overdue materials, there are many ways for Library patrons to show love for their Library.
