About the branch

The Bedford Branch (formerly known as the Southeast Branch) became the fourth branch to join Cuyahoga County Public Library in 1924. A groundbreaking for the current 14,617-square-foot building took place in 1990 and the building was formally dedicated a year later.

This branch is a Student Success Center and a Greater Cleveland Food Bank Kids Café location.
