You should see the garage at my Mom’s house and my office area in the corner of our bedroom and you would know why my husband says, “Why do you keep every piece of paper that passes through your hands?” I say, “Someday I might need it.” This was the winter that I proved the validity of my statement because while looking at my earliest Stroll planning papers, I discovered that the Stroll didn’t begin in 2006 – 2007 was our first year.

Euclid Public Library strives to foster a welcoming environment while encouraging patrons to use the facility and its resources for learning and enrichment. To preserve that opportunity, the library expects patrons to be respectful of each other and behave in a manner that does not disrupt other patrons or staff. In the past several years, we have taken a number of significant steps designed to improve the learning environment – and indeed the safety – at our library. We have hired additional staff and police to supervise the building, increased after school programming, improved our safety and security technology, and more.
Unfortunately, since the beginning of 2017, the library has experienced a sharp increase in disruptive behavior during after-school hours that has prevented the library from serving as a safe space for all library users. There have been multiple harmful incidents involving youth, including fights, vandalism, assaults on police officers, and inappropriate computer usage. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
As a result, the Euclid Public Library Board of Trustees has approved several amendments to our Library Code of Conduct and Unattended Children policies. Effective March 1st:

Dear Euclid Residents,
On November 8, 2016 Euclid voters passed Issue 111. The Euclid Board of Education would like to thank the voters of Euclid for your support of Euclid City Schools. Your support allows us to Finish the Job we started when we built our four new elementary schools. We will now be able to provide all students in Euclid schools with the 21st Century learning environments they need to succeed.
There is much work to be done to move our Finish the Job initiative forward toward ultimately rebuilding Euclid High School, building a new Middle School, building a new Early Learning Village, as well as making improvements to Sparky DiBiasio Stadium, Memorial Park and creating a new Metro Park at the Central Middle School site. We will be keeping the community informed as to the project’s progress. Our progress can be monitored by following an informative Finish the Job Blog. The blog can be found at www.euclidschools.org under the Our Euclid tab. The Euclid Board of Education meetings will soon be broadcasted on the City of Euclid cable channel. Project updates as well as opportunities for community participation in the project will be communicated at Euclid Board of Education Meeting. If at any time you have a question about the project or have any concerns related to Euclid City Schools please feel free to contact a Board Member. Our Superintendent Dr. Smialek can also be contacted at any time with any question you might have. All contact information for the board and administration can be found on www.euclidschools.org under the Our Euclid tab- Board of Education or Administration.
Thank you once again to Euclid Voters for allowing our Finish the Job Initiative to become a reality.
