Langston Hughes Branch Temporarily Closes for Repairs September 17

Langston Hughes Branch

As part of a system-wide effort to ensure Cleveland Public Library’s branch libraries are safe, accessible, and positioned to serve the Cleveland community well into the future, Langston Hughes Branch is scheduled to undergo some necessary repair work. As a result, the branch is expected to temporarily close on Monday, September 17.

During this time, patrons will be directed to the nearby Hough, Glenville, and Martin Luther King, Jr. branches to receive library services. While some of the resulting repairs may not be immediately noticeable on sight, this maintenance work is imperative to ensure our facilities are safe, sustainable, and ADA compliant.
