CLEVELAND

The Cuyahoga County Public Library is in the midst of replacing and renovating 18 of its 28 branches as part of a $110 million project to make the atmosphere at its branches similar to bookstores, with residents finding it easier to browse, enjoy coffee and exchange ideas.

The Plain Dealer reports library officials want the new and renovated branches to become community gathering places.

Library officials say the changes won’t mean any new taxes. The library system serving 47 communities sold $75 million in bonds to finance most of the project. An addtional $25 million came from the library’s capital funds, and $10 million will come from private donors.
