For school-age students in first through twelfth grade (parents/caregivers welcome).

The telegraph was one of the first technological inventions of the Industrial Age and it changed communication forever. Samuel Morse's "dot-dash" code used in the transmission of signals via electricity through long wires made instantaneous communication over long distances a reality. It put an end to the then-current methods of the pony express, carrier pigeon and more. In this hands-on program you will learn about the invention of the telegraph, Morse code, and the effect it had on communication 100 years ago. Then, you will build your own telegraph "beeper" and try your hand with communicating with each other using Morse code. Supplies are provided. Space is limited. Registration is required. To register, please stop in, register online at www.lakewoodpubliclibrary.org/youth or call (216) 226-8275, ext. 140.

Barbara Greenberg, J.D. Showcases Free Speech, Press, Assembly, And Religion

When America’s founders crafted the Bill of Rights, they appended to the Constitution a set of ten amendments which were revolutionary in their guarantees of individual freedom. No amendment to the Constitution is more important -- or has created more controversy -- than the First Amendment, which includes protections for free speech, the free exercise of religion, the right to peaceably assemble and freedom of the press. What is speech? Who has the right to speak? What types of speech are prohibited? Is the law different if you’re famous? How does the freedom of the press apply in the age of social media? What types of assemblies are allowed? Should any assemblies be curtailed? Does separation of church and state still exist? What is religion? And who gets to decide?
