Message from Director Armstrong
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, staff, and our library support groups, we want to extend our sincere thanks for your on-going support of the Euclid Public Library.
Participating in library programs, checking out important academic and professional materials, downloading audio and eBooks, applying for a passport, and teaching your children early literacy skills in our Sparkle Spot Early Literacy Education Center allows the Euclid Public Library staff the opportunity to help you achieve your academic, professional and personal goals.
Over 360,000 people walk through our doors in a given year and staff regularly hear comments such as:
“I moved to Euclid because of the Euclid Public Library!”
“You have a beautiful and well-maintained building!”
“The staff are professional, helpful, and kind. They always help me find what I need.”
“I love the Euclid Public Library!”
We appreciate that through your support the Library can continue to offer the resources, materials, programs, and services to all of Euclid’s 47,000 residents, guests, and our CLEVNET members.
On Tuesday, May 7, the Euclid Public Library will ask residents to renew its current 5.6 mill five-year operating levy that supports services and programming for our community. The operating renewal generates $3.1 million each year and will not increase taxes. On average, the renewal will cost taxpayers $115.85 annually, based on a $75,000 property valuation. Since 2014, Euclid Public Library has identified ways to provide patrons with cutting-edge services. EPL created more youth and family activities after school and offered specialized programs, such as ACT/SAT tutoring and STEAM programs. Additionally, the Library increased overall program attendance and book, movie, and music checkouts.
As we continue to provide traditional library offerings such as books, internet, and computer access, Euclid Public Library is thrilled to offer several new services including the College Now of Greater Cleveland’s Mobile Unit and Managing Advanced Programs (MAP) database for adult learners. Those pursuing postsecondary educational pathways that lead to living wage occupations can find support through free counseling and advising services at the library.

I proudly serve the Euclid community as the Marketing & Communications Manager for the Euclid Public Library.
