Community Resource Closet at East 131st Street Branch in the Corlett Neighborhood

Cleveland Public Library is providing the tools needed to build confidence and meet the basic needs of our community. The East 131st Street Branch, in partnership with Mt. Pleasant MyCom, has opened a Resource Closet for teens and families. The closet provides gloves, hats, socks, household cleaning products, and toiletries such as body wash, lotion, and more. The items are available for pickup every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We are always accepting donations. Cleveland Public Library provides Grab & Go meals for children 18 and under at all locations. Visit your local neighborhood branch or call ahead for distribution times.
