Patrons can now check out eReaders at all Heights Libraries locations
A year ago, Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library added half a dozen or so eReaders to its collection at Lee Road Library.

The idea is that patrons can "try it before they buy it" and learn to use the devices. “Our customers have been clamoring for more eReaders,” said Heights Libraries Deputy Director Kimberlee DeNero-Ackroyd in a press release. “Circulating these devices serves several purposes: It gives customers an opportunity to try these products and make more informed purchasing decisions, it provides library customers an opportunity to try a different …

90 photos that define Cleveland Heights
Cleveland Heights officially became a city in 1921. Cleveland Heights Patch is observing that 90th anniversary by compiling 90 photos to create an album of the city's past and present.
