Because of you, Euclid Public Library continues to transform! The first quarter of the year has been very busy. Program attendance has increased, more families are enjoying our Sparkle Spot Early Literacy Center, and our meeting room usage has increased by 32%! Also, it is truly a joy to help you start your vacation plans through our passport service. EPL began offering passport services in the fall of 2016 and on average we are accepting about 40 passport applications per month. We invite you to check out some of our travel resources as you begin your journey.
Last month, we implemented our new limited access policy for children under the age of 18. This decision was made to provide a safe and welcoming space for all. We received feedback from many concerned residents, through our meetings, emails, phone calls, and face-to-face conversations and will spend the next few weeks compiling this information into a usable report. Our hope is to develop solutions for our children after school. The data will be shared with our Board of Trustees, parents, school officials, city leaders, and community members.
As we continue to research options, we want to remind everyone that students may access the library with a parent, guardian or caregiver 21 years of age or older between 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM Monday - Friday. Additionally, children pre-registered for a library program may enter the library fifteen minutes before the start of the event.
Euclid Public Library offers a variety of programs for all ages and this is a great time to enjoy a gardening program such as Botanical Fairy Flowerpots on Wednesday, April 12 or celebrate National Poetry Month with our Open Mic Poetry Night on Monday, April 24, sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
