Lorain Branch Closing for Renovations

Cleveland Public Library is continuing to bring new life to its neighborhood branches. As part of our 10-year plan to improve our branches and the user experience, our latest construction project is the historic Lorain Branch in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood.

Starting Monday, October 4, the Lorain Branch will be open for walk-up service only. It will temporarily close to the public on Saturday, October 9 at the close of business at 6 p.m.

The closure will allow for modern renovations that highlight the historic framework of the Carnegie building. Renovation plans include a new community room, a laptop bar, café space, a dedicated teen space, and much more. 

While the Lorain Branch is closed, patrons are encouraged to visit the Carnegie West Branch or utilize our books by mail service, Words on Wheels.
