Reading is Fun…at the Beach!

The Lakefront Literacy Project debuted last summer at Euclid Beach Park and was well used by park visitor of all ages. Come out this summer to borrow a book, magazine or newspaper.

The Lakefront Literacy Project is back for a second summer of literature and learning at Euclid Beach Park.

Visit the mini-mobile library shelf part of the renowned “Little Free Library” network during Euclid Beach Live concerts on Friday evenings and select Saturdays all summer long.

Borrow a book, magazine, Collinwood or Euclid Observer Newspaper for free – and for as long as you are enjoying it! That’s right, no overdue notices or fines. Take the summer to read about new, healthy recipes and settle in for an entire book series.  After all, what could be more perfect than the sounds of the lake water lapping the shore, sunshine and a good book!

The project launched last summer thanks to support from Northeast Shores Development Corporation, Neighborhood Connections, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Cleveland Public Library Collinwood Branch and generous friends, family, and neighbors like you!

With a rotating collection for children, teens, and adults including Russian language speakers, you’ll always find something new.
