growing BEYOND

Cleveland Public Library has always been positioned as a critical community asset and resource focused on serving the needs of the City and the individual neighborhoods surrounding our branches. However, we do not exist in a vacuum and recognize that, in order to remain relevant and provide our patrons with the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively compete in a global society, we must look beyond our traditional borders. Providing service and materials to those beyond our traditional City limits is by no means new to the Library. However, in 2011, we set our sights even higher and expanded our visibility to a much larger audience.
