West Park

In 2017, Cleveland voters approved a levy for more funding for the Cleveland Public Library. As our promise to the community, the Library is using that money to rebuild, renovate and reimagine the spaces at each of its branches. Help us take this next step in the design process to be collaborative to achieve optimal results.

Cleveland Public Library is moving to the next chapter of the Facilities Master Plan.

History & Architecture

Completed in 1928, West Park is one of many Cleveland Public Library branches created by the architecture firm Walker & Weeks. This branch’s architectural style is a modified English Tudor. The branch is constructed of red brick with stone trim with a beautiful slate roof. One of the features of the building was the leaded glass bays. At 14,400 square feet, West Park is one of the largest Cleveland Public Library branches.
