The Cleveland State University Library, in partnership with the Cleveland Public Library, will hold a grand opening of the Cleveland State University Library Connection Lounge on Tuesday, August 30. The grand opening reception and ribbon cutting begins at 12:30 p.m. on the first floor of the University Library. Michael Schwartz, President of Cleveland State University, and Andrew A.Venable, Director of Cleveland Public Library, will be featured speakers. Guests can explore the new area and sign up for a Cleveland Public Library card after the program and ribbon cutting ceremony. The event is free and open to the public.
The new Library Connection Lounge will provide the campus community with contemporary and popular books, courtesy of the Cleveland Public Library. Anyone with a Greater Access Card can check out these titles using the CPL self-checkout station located near the Lounge.

It will include comfortable lounge furniture, electricity, and LAN connections for students with laptops, and eventually a large screen TV with continuous news coverage (captions only, no sound).
