What Will You Discover With Cleveland Public Library

Maybe you’ll discover the secrets of your family’s past. Maybe you’ll discover a new career path. Maybe you’ll discover a talent you never knew you had. Or develop one you’ve always wanted to perfect. Maybe you’ll discover the untold stories and photos of Clevelanders from every corner of the city. And maybe you’ll discover a new friend, a welcoming smile, a helping hand. You see, for 150 years, we’ve been Cleveland’s center of learning, opening doors of opportunity for the whole northeast Ohio community. And helping people discover all kinds of new ideas, places, people.
