CLOSINGS: Labor Day September 6 Staff Day October 8 Thanksgiving November 25 Christmas December 24, 25, 26 Entering the fall and winter season, I am truly thrilled to say the words, “Welcome back!” The Euclid Public Library is fully open and ready to serve you through face-to-face programs and services. The library will continue to follow the Cuyahoga County Board of Health guidelines and the Centers for Disease Control related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As you visit the library, we ask for your patience as we remind visitors of all ages of our behavior expectations while using the library. We anticipate some noise and excitement, especially from our youngest guests. September is a perfect time to resume normal library services and hours, as it is also Library Card Sign-Up Month. This year, author and executive producer Marley Dias will serve as the honorary American Library Association Chair. We want all 47,000+ Euclid residents to have a library card. Stop by anytime to apply for or renew your library card. Now that we are back open, visit EPL for dozens of library programs, including the Friends of the Library’s annual meeting on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., and support the Euclid Public Library Foundation’s annual fundraiser, which starts October 1. The Friends will host a special Women in History Re-enactor, Jane Addams. You can join the meeting virtually or in person! EPL will be closed on October 8, 2021, for EPL’s annual Staff Development Day. For a complete listing of our programs, services, resources, and closing dates, visit us online at . We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for supporting the Euclid Public Library. Director’s Report Kacie V.
