Euclid Public Library has reached the six-month mark in our Libraries Transforming Communities campaign. This year, we have reached out to residents to discuss the various ways that our library can help improve the community. We’ve completed surveys, focus groups, discussion events with the City and Euclid City School District, and have even hosted special programs with authors and poets. A few weeks ago, we hosted the Breakfast with the Superintendent program to learn more about our school district. Superintendent Keith Bell and incoming Superintendent Dr. Charles Smialek shared many updates regarding our students, buildings, and upcoming plans. Please visit www.euclidlibrary.org for a list of Q&As from May’s breakfast regarding the schools.
Using these various tools, surveys, discussions, focus groups, and events, the library will continue to work with the State Library of Ohio to prepare a report for the community. As we move into the summer months, one of the major roles that our library system continues to play in helping to transform the community is being a champion of literacy causes such as summer reading.
This summer our theme is On Your Mark, Get Set...Read! We invite you to our Summer Reading Kick-Off on Monday, June 6 at 2:00 PM. Our theme not only promotes reading, but encourages families to maintain a healthy living style, including regular exercise and healthy eating. Most professionals also encourage you to care for your mental, emotional, spiritual and financial health as well. Over the summer, we offer a variety of books and print resources to help you learn more about these topics. In addition, we invite you to one of our health programs, such as Zumba on Saturday, June 4, The Tomato! on Thursday, June 9, Color Yourself Calm on Monday, June 13, and Hip Hop Dance on Saturday, June 25. For a listing of all of our programs, check our online calendar
Have a safe and fun summer season!
