Bay Library is Discussion Item for Cuyahoga County Public Library Board

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.

The Library has $8 million set aside for a Bay Village Branch improvement.CuyahogaLibrary

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:
