Lakewood Public Library Madison Branch Bike Rack Ribbon Cutting

Staff from Lakewood Public Library, members of Bike Cleveland, representatives from Knabe Law Firm, local bike shop owners, and city officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 after the instillation of a bike rack this fall. The custom bike rack, featuring the Bike Lakewood logo, was donated by Knabe Law Firm and installed at the Lakewood Public Library, Madison Branch in the historic Birdtown area of Lakewood.

The idea for the new bike rack was initiated by Ken Knabe, and the project was coordinated by: Parker Mulholland of Knabe Law Firm; Jason Kuhn and Jacob VanSickle of Bike Cleveland; and Molly McGirr Norris, Judy Grzybowski, and Gregory Christian of Lakewood Public Library. At the ceremony Kuhn spoke about how generous community members like Knabe allow Bike Cleveland and its divisions including Bike Lakewood to work towards their goal of safer streets for all drivers. Knabe is an avid cyclist himself, and the Knabe Law Firm focuses on protecting the cyclists of the Greater Cleveland Area.

Great Decisions in the Library – The Waning of Pax Americana?
Led by Dr. Javier Morales-Ortiz

Since 1945, Pax Americana has promised peaceful international relations and an open economy, buttressed by U.S. military power. In championing “America First” isolationism, President Trump has shifted the political mood toward selective U.S. engagement, where foreign commitments are limited to areas of vital U.S. interest, and economic nationalism is the order of the day. What short-term and long-term implications do these isolationist policies have? After a brief video, Dr. Javier Morales-Ortiz will lead a discussion and help to answer some of the complex questions surrounding American isolationism.

The Visual Glory Of Rock And Roll

If you were a teenager in the 1970s, you remember the music. Rock and roll was blasting from cars, in living rooms and at parties. With no earbuds, nobody had a private soundtrack. Rock music was part of the culture, a communal experience. The high point of that culture was the live concert, and Cleveland knew how to put on a show.

If you want to relive those heady days of rock and roll or see a photographer whose work spans decades of live shows in Cleveland, join Janet Macoska and Peter Chakerian in the Main Library Auditorium on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. when they present their book, “All Access Cleveland: The Rock and Roll Photography of Janet Macoska.”

Share the Dream: A Celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.

          For some children, being off from school on January 21, 2019, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, means sleeping late, playing video games, and watching television. The Lakewood Public Library is offering a meaningful alternate. Your child can still catch some extra shut eye, however from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. they can take part in a program that will celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through stories, songs, and a craft. As part of the MLK Day of Service, participants will create cards which will be distributed to local nursing home residents. This artistic endeavor will brighten the day of a senior citizen and provide your child with a chance to serve others. The cards will be delivered to a local nursing home by a library staff member at a later date. Each child will also be given the opportunity to make a take home booklet about the life of Dr. King. There is no need to register in advance. All school-age children are invited to participate in this program which will take place in the Main Library Multipurpose Room.

Strokes Of Genius Comes To A Close

The seven week Fall session of Strokes of Genius at the Lakewood Public Library came to a close in November as participating second, third, and fourth graders proudly showcased their talent at an art show for family and friends. Each week students learned about the life and work of a different artist and then completed an art project in the style of that artist. Artwork created by Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrain, and Pablo Picasso provided the inspiration for the students’ creative efforts. Cut paper, oil pastels, watercolor paints, crayons, and markers were some of the art mediums used. After learning about Rembrandt the students completed a “half” portrait. A photo of each child’s face was cut in half down the middle and students drew the other half of their face with colored pencils. Many young artists said it was the most difficult project but also the one they liked the most. At the conclusion of the Art Show each participant took home a certificate and their creative work.

Sometimes when everything is at its very worst, the only reasonable thing to do is throw a big party. Headlines in the 30’s and 40’s were grim, but as Americans were slogging through the Great Depression and World War II, a killer diller dance party began sweeping the nation. The music behind the new craze was an up-tempo jazz called Swing.

The Scimitars Swing Band specializes in the music of the Big Band Era and is performing at Lakewood Public Library as part of our Sunday With The Friends program on Sunday, September 9, 2018. The party starts at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library Multipurpose Room.

The Scimitars Swing Band is part of the Al Koran Shrine band tradition that began in 1905. Cleveland’s Al Koran is the 4th oldest Shrine center in North America.
