International Exchanges and Recognition

Cleveland Public Library is not only attracting attention across the country, but it is also being recognized by an international audience. As a result, the Library hosted several international delegations, including groups from China and Sweden, which spent time in Cleveland to better understand the Library’s best practices and view our unparalleled collections.

In August, the Library also hosted an international checkers competition between Alex Moiseyev of Russia and Michele Borghetti of Italy. The competition coincided with the Library’s “King Me” exhibit which showcased the Library’s fabulous collection of checkers memorabilia.
