Martin Luther King, Jr. Branch will be closed Tuesday, September 29 due to the Presidential debate.

Storytime with WKYC’s Maureen Kyle: I Am A Rainbow by Dolly Parton, and The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

We love a good storytime as much as the next person, so we’re joining WKYC for live storytimes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings! We are happy to partner with them to promote literacy during this time of shelter-in-place. Join Maureen Kyle as she reads to your kids today!

It’s story time! We are reading another story from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and since the star is donating a million dollars to Coronavirus research, watch as Maureen Kyle also reads The Giving Tree. Please feel free to interact and talk about ways your family is giving in the comments below. Cleveland Public Library
