About Shaker Library

Shaker Heights Public Library strengthens our community and transforms lives by bringing together people, information, and ideas.

Shaker Library is nationally recognized as one of America's best libraries.

The library is a  community gathering place with an 80-year tradition of providing excellent services to address the needs and interests of Shaker residents of all ages

Shaker Library's CLEVNET membership blends the cost savings and collaboration of regionalism with the accountability of local control.

Shaker Library embraced regionalism by joining CLEVNET in 1983 and has benefited ever since. CLEVNET is a resource-sharing network of 44 partner libraries in 71 cities, including 111 branches, making it one of the largest public library consortia in the world.

A Shaker Library card provides access to almost 11 million items, including almost 800,000 e-books and e-audiobooks.

CLEVNET is a good investment. Partner libraries receive a $6 return on every $1 invested.
