Beyond Bricks and Books Capital Campaign

The Beyond Bricks and Books Capital Campaign is focused on maintaining the Library’s tradition of excellence and innovation by investing in modern, energy-efficient branches. Our goal of $10 million will help close the gap between available capital dollars and the dollars needed to complete the largest building improvement program in the Library’s 90-year history. Learn more about the building projects you can help to support in our Facilities Master Plan

Planned Giving/Estate Planning

You can share in the future of the Library by including the Cuyahoga County Public Library Endowment Fund in your estate planning. The Cuyahoga County Public Library Endowment Fund was established in 1986 by the Board of Library Trustees to provide individuals with an opportunity to support the Library. Contact Hallie Rich, Communications & External Relations Director at 216.749.9512 to learn more.
