A Message from the Executive Director, Sheba Marcus-Bey


Here at the East Cleveland Public Library, we are bringing the gift of reading to the East Cleveland community. Our Pee Wee Reading Roundtable, designed to help students in grades K-3 improve their reading skills, is going strong. We will also be starting another round of our Cursive Writing Class on Thursday, December 4. Studies have shown that handwriting is a foundational skill that can influence students’ reading, writing, language use, and critical thinking.  At the East Cleveland Public Library, we are doing what we can to ensure that our children have the skills they need to succeed.

The Library will be hosting William Clarence Marshall on Saturday, December 22 at 2:00 pm for his Memories, Monologues, and Music program, which is sure to be an event you won’t want to miss. Mr. Marshall has appeared in opera houses throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, and the Middle East and we are honored to have him perform here.

On Wednesday, December 17, our Youth Services Department is hosting a Holiday Celebration that includes a puppet show performance of the book Corduroy by our talented teens. Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of East Cleveland Public Library, we will be able to give away 100 sets of hats and gloves to children ages 5-18 during that program. Santa Claus will also be making an appearance at the library on Wednesday, December 17, so don’t miss this opportunity to get a photo taken with Santa for free!

The East Cleveland Public Library is looking forward to the new year and the opportunity to offer new and innovative programs and services to the East Cleveland community.  So stop by, log on, and join as we all experience the power of learning and the gift of libraries!
