CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Public Library will begin construction on its new Hough branch on Saturday morning, marking the event with a celebration at 10:30 am.
The new Hough branch site is located on Lexington Avenue and E. 66th Street, near historic League Park. Library leaders and community members will be in attendance.
According to a press release, the architects were inspired for the branch of the mythical bird Sankofa in Africa. The new building will have an improved children’s area, mobile workstations, meeting rooms and a welcoming outdoor space.
The project is part of the Cleveland Public Library’s 10-year plan to build or renovate side libraries to improve the visitor experience, the statement said.
