The Cleveland Public Library has one Main location downtown, 30 branches, and one bookmobile. Opened as a public school library for the city’s Board of Education in 1869, the Library served as one of the first large public libraries that permitted people to directly select their own books from the shelves.
The Lorain Branch (8216 Lorain Ave./83rd Ave.) is located on the west side of Cleveland, just north of I-90. This Branch location, opened in 1912, was built with funds from Andrew Carnegie. The Greek-inspired building is 8,400 square feet in size.
We hope that through this experience, you'll enjoy learning about and seeing the Lorain Branch and its local neighborhood!
