A Message from our Director, Kacie V. Armstrong
This summer, we invite all ages to participate in our annual Summer Reading Program! We encourage families to truly Make Your Summer Count! With our “Every Hero Has a Story” theme, children and teens can read, complete math and volunteer activities, and enter drawings to win special tickets to various cultural institutions throughout the greater Cleveland area!
Keeping busy over the summer and including reading, math and volunteer activities help students stay sharp and be ready for the upcoming school year. Some of our Shoreview second graders have started activities already! The students surprised us by preparing special posters about life in 1935 to display in our lobby. These informative posters compare items from the past with items from the present, such as the phone, a car and even an early computer! Students researched prices of milk, eggs and other items. We appreciate and thank our students for researching our history and participating in a special tour and program to celebrate our anniversary.
Not only have our students gotten into the fun, but our support groups, the Foundation and Friends, actively volunteer their time for us. On your next visit, you’ll note the new oak tree in front of the library. This tree was planted to recognize the 80 years of service the library has provided our city. One of our Euclid Library Foundation board members is May Bana, the wife of our former Director Joseph Bana. Mr. Bana began his career at the library in 1966 and retired after nearly 20 years of service. May continues to support the library through her work on the Foundation and with her kind gifts of flowers and hugs. I encourage you to learn more about the Friends of the Library and Foundation online at euclidlibrary.org.
As you vacation and enjoy a fun filled summer, remember to take a great book with you on your journey. Librarians are here to recommend new titles or answer any questions regarding our programs, services and resources.
