Cuyahoga County Public Library has the Bay Village Branch on the agenda as a discussion topic for its Capital Committee Meeting tomorrow, Sept. 27, at 4 p.m. at the Parma-Snow Branch.
Last spring, CCPL looked at building a new Bay Village branch in Huntington Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks. The Metroparks have since pulled out of discussions.
Possible locales for a new library in Bay Village or a branch renovation include:
-A move to Cahoon Park, where a new library footprint would be developed.
-A renovation and addition to the existing library at its present location behind the Middle School.
-A new library at the existing site at the present location, possibly including a new build on the existing parking lot.
What would a move to Cahoon Park mean to Bay? Possibly a loss or trees or soccer fields. Would it be permitted under terms of the Cahoon Will? Probably yes. The will calls for the park to have a library. The provision is currently being met by the archival library of historic books at Rose Hill Museum and Osborn House.
Here is the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting:
