Bay library to host community-wide book discussion
Cuyahoga County Public Library is once again a proud partner and presenter of the One Community Reads program. This initiative for all Cuyahoga County residents, with County Executive Armond Budish as honorary chair, encourages discussions based around the reading of a common book exploring themes that resonate with our communities in Northeast Ohio.
The book this year is "Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life" by renowned sociologist Eric Klinenberg, which explores the connections between robust community services including libraries and parks, to overall neighborhood and public health. Klinenberg has written a testament to the roles of libraries, community centers and public parks as critical components of social infrastructure for our residents.
Community members are invited to read "Palaces for the People" and join in on related events regionwide.
Here in Bay Village, library staff will lead a book discussion at the library on Thursday, March 5, at 7 p.m Stop in at the branch to get your copy of "Palaces for the People" today and join in on what's sure to be a lively discussion! Refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Friends of the Bay Village Library. No registration necessary.
A full list of events can be found at the One Community Reads website: onecommunityreads.org.
Jessica Breslin is the Branch Manager of the Bay Village Branch Library.
