History & Architecture

Garden Valley more than makes up for its small size through a focus on convenience and innovation. The branch first opened in 1969 in an apartment building as part of the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority. In 1973, the branch moved to the Community Services Building.

The current facility opened in 2008. Today, this branch serves a large number of children in the surrounding community.

Special Features

During the school year, Garden Valley offers a Kids Café, a partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to provide free bagged lunches for children. The branch also provides meals to youth in the summer as part of the Summer Lunch Program.
