We know it's hard to focus on learning when your stomach is empty. That's why we collaborate with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to provide children with free grab-and-go meals during the school year in communities where the need is great at select branch locations. Grab-and-go meals are available while supplies last at nine Cuyahoga County Public Library branches. 


Art supplies

Artful Impact

Art isn’t just about making something beautiful – you can create art to express yourself, communicate, build confidence and feel good.

Led by Art Therapy Studios, this program will guide students in grades K – 8 through hands-on experiences in using art to make an impact on themselves and others. Five branches host Artful Impact programs.

1-2-3 Read @ Home 

Our 1-2-3 Read @ Home instructional content has been designed to give parents the tools they need to help their children connect with reading. Each 1-2-3 Read @ Home unit consists of interactive, instructional videos and at-home learning activities, including:

•Story unit from the Core Knowledge Language Arts® Folk & Fairy Tales curriculum emphasizing reading and listening comprehension. Comprehension is a universal strategy that helps students become successful readers.

•Parent Resources that explain the content learning for each unit, offer comprehension questions to use with their students after reading the story, and tips on how to help their student benefit from the story and its associated activities.
