A Message from our Director, Kacie V. Armstrong
Euclid Public Library is popularly known as the “gem” of our community. A gem is noteworthy because typically it is seen as precious, prized and perfect. Like a gem, our library is a critical component to the success of our community. By providing resources, programs and services, residents are able to prepare for work and school, upgrade or learn new skills and most importantly connect with like minds to seek out solutions to make our community and world a better place.
As an organization, we seek to strengthen our community through engagement, education and innovation. Euclid Public Library offers parents and children an early literacy play space called Sparkle Spot. Our library staff regularly provides outreach visits to our preschools and day cares. Each month, seniors and homebound patrons receive deliveries of books, music and movies from our staff. School-aged children and teens receive special visits and programs directly in their schools!
We are proud to have served the residents of Euclid for the past 79 years! This November, you’ll notice that the library is on the ballot. Over the past few years, all of the library’s revenue sources have been reduced. The State of Ohio decreased the Public Library Fund (PLF) by 6%, the Category Activity Tax (CAT) was reduced by 58% and the existing Euclid Library levy has decreased by 26%. Replenishing and stabilizing our budget will allow us to continue to offer computer classes, story times, author visits, eMedia workshops, summer reading programs and a wealth of programs to help our community become stronger and more effective. This is the true definition of strength!
There is much to learn and do when you visit the library. For more information regarding the library, visit us at euclidlibrary.org or call anytime.
Thank you for supporting our local public library.
