The Cleveland Public Library, founded in 1869, includes the main library on Superior Avenue at E 3rd St. and 28 branch libraries, scattered throughout the city. (That's the Fleet Avenue Branch, pictured at right.) Library cards are free to Ohio residents and temporary cards are available for visitors planning on staying at least six weeks in the area.
All branches offer computers and Internet access as well as a good selection of DVDs and CDs. It's a wonderful resource.
