The Coventry Village branch offers a diverse popular collection, including Fiction and Non-fiction books, videos, DVDs, recorded books, CDs, teen materials, and children’s materials. The Coventry branch also receives 250 Russian books from Cleveland Public Library every other month and has a small number of other foreign language books including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, and Spanish. The library is currently in the process of developing a Local Author Collection of books and audio-visual materials by Cleveland Heights and University Heights authors.
The Coventry branch has a unique 25-year tradition of offering special services to the deaf community. A full-time librarian on the staff has a primary focus of service to the deaf, including a collection of books and audio-visual materials for and about the deaf community. The librarian also coordinates monthly programs such as the Deaf Film Series and Deaf Gatherings. Additionally, the Coventry branch offers a series of ASL classes several times each year and has recently installed a Sorensen video relay phone for deaf and hard-of-hearing customers.
The Coventry branch is as diverse as the neighborhood it represents. Stop in for a baby, toddler, or children’s storytime. If that doesn’t interest you, then join us for the Coventry Concert Night or a program in our Local Author series. Or maybe stop in for the Step Out of Time Series, a monthly program dedicated to alternative health and spiritual practices including meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, and other disciplines.
