The Cleveland Public Library System: Something to Be Proud of

By January 25, 2014

As a writer, I love the Cleveland Public Library. Where else can you have access to more than 10 million books, tapes, and CDs and have them delivered to your local branch library for pickup? With the library's online database, you can search the CLEVNET system, a consortium of 31 Northeast Ohio library systems, request material, and renew items -- all from the privacy of your home.

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.
