MLK.pngOur annual children's book drive will culminate in a special day of service in honor of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 21, 2018. 

All Cuyahoga County Public Library branches will be open from 9 AM to 9 PM on MLK Day. We invite you to visit your local branch to write messages of encouragement for young readers that will be placed in books donated during our children's book drive, meet representatives of local non-profits and learn about volunteer opportunities in your community. 

We're looking for a few good volunteers to help sort the books we collected during our annual children's book drive.


Volunteers will sort and count the books, then box them up for distribution to Cleveland Kids' Book Bank and Reach Out and Read. Please register if you'd like to help out. 

Monday, January 21; Tuesday, January 22; Wednesday, January 23
9 AM – 3 PM

Check in at the front desk of the Parma-Snow Branch located at 2121 Snow Road, Parma, OH 44134.
