CLEVELAND — Cleveland Public Library is celebrating a new beginning in Cleveland's Central neighborhood with construction of a new Woodland Branch set to begin.

Groundbreaking on the branch will begin at its current site on Woodland Avenue and East 55th Street.

The renovation is the second of four events planned over the next month that is included in Cleveland Public Library's 10-year plan to build or renovate library branches in the area.

Cleveland Public Library said the new Woodland Branch will be "more spacious, vibrant, and accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers" while having more windows and new furnishings with meeting rooms for both small and large groups.

At the beginning of June, Cleveland Public Library broke ground on the new Hough Branch near the historic League Park.
