All programs and services at the downtown main library and 27 neighborhood branches are canceled. The library will continue, however, to provide meals to children weekdays from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at all branches.
“This was a difficult decision for the staff at Cleveland Public Library," said Felton Thomas, library CEO, in a statement provided to the media. "We know how much our community depends on us. We hope our closure will keep our employees and patrons safe and healthy and reduce exposure to this disease."
All of the library's digital and streaming services will remain available for patrons to access.
Cleveland Public Library will close to the public at the end of the day, Friday, March 13 until further notice. All programs, services, outreach activities, and meeting room reservations have been cancelled. https://t.co/bEHQIxadwd— ClevelandPubLibrary (@Cleveland_PL) March 13, 2020
