Summary Report Released!


From 2014 through 2017, the Cleveland Public Library, in collaboration with the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, engaged communities around 13 neighborhood branches in the CPL system:

  • GROUP 1: Fleet; South; Sterling; and Woodland branches
  • GROUP 2: Brooklyn; East 131st; Mt Pleasant; and South Brooklyn branches
  • GROUP 3: Eastman; Hough; Union; Walz; and West Park branches




Though each neighborhood had distinct needs for its local branch, the design team found many common themes across all libraries surveyed. The team organized these thematic commonalities by experience level, like each Group report: Building; Grounds; Neighborhood; and Services.
