    Woodland Branch


    Branch History
    The first building on the present site was a small Methodist chapel. At its inception, Woodland Library was described in the 1904 Annual Report as: “a one story colonial structure of brick, with stone trimmings, in a setting of green lawn, flowers, and shade trees.” The entrance opened into a wainscoted vestibule with a leaded glass partition. In the corridor hung Ongania’s St. Mark’s.

    In 1957 the building burned down and was rebuilt  to open in 1961. The new Woodland Branch is a low-slung modern one-story building.

    Special Features
    Woodland Branch’s 15,300 square feet houses an extensive Black World collection of both fiction and non-fiction materials. It is also a site for the "America Reads" tutoring program, a partnership with Cleveland State University that provides local children with free one-on-one tutoring in reading skills by college students majoring in education. The branch offers a variety of computer classes Monday through Friday every month.
