Summoning The Divine In Nature: Brian Henkeís Guitar

Known as the guru of finger style guitar, Brian Henke is a self-taught guitarist, composer, and a graduate of Lakewood High School. Henke finds inspiration mainly from nature, but also from his own human reaction to the divine in everything around and within us. Henke brings his unique acoustic guitar style to Lakewood Public Library on Sunday, June 30 at 2:00 p.m. in Lakewood Public Library’s Main Auditorium. But before he does, he sits down to answer some questions about himself and his work.

When did you first realize that the guitar was the instrument for you?

I received my first real guitar, a Harmony Stella, on the evening of my 13th birthday. It was like the heavens opened up and all the angels were singing.

Special Friday Performance: Music To Go With Miss Misty

Get ready to jump, wiggle, and dance all around with sing-along music when Miss Misty performs at the Lakewood Public Library. Miss Misty will engage the audience with her beautiful voice as she sings and plays the guitar. This performer knows how to entertain! Having earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Ohio University, Misty Drotleff uses the power of music with children to encourage early literacy. She has been doing children’s musical performances for the past eleven years at several west side libraries and for several community events and programs. Misty states, “My main goal for performances is to keep the children engaged with high energy songs that foster movement, singing along and, of course, general silliness.” For this specific program at Lakewood, she is planning on performing circle and movement songs, many classic children’s songs with a twist, and a few cover songs from popular children’s artists.

The Friends Summer Book Sale Is Just In Time

Summer is finally here! Time to hit the beach and soak up some rays… But wait. You don’t want to take that Library book to the beach do you? What if it gets wet? Or gets ice cream all over it? Or starts to smell like cocoa butter?

Once again, the Friends of Lakewood Public Library are saving the day. The volunteer group that supports so many wonderful things at Lakewood Public Library will be hosting their Summer $3.00 Bag of Books Sale on Saturday, June 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the basement of the Main Library. That’s right! You can purchase a whole bag of romances, mysteries, thrillers and more for just three dollars—and nothing is stopping you from buying more than one bag. The best part is that, once you finish up that inexpensive Grisham, you can make room in your beach tote by tossing it to a pelican or other large seabird—or donate it back to the Friends. The good times never have to stop.

A small, happy crowd can often be found gathered around the Library’s Lakewood High School yearbook collection.

But we need your help! We are asking for your donations to add to a collection that has become a treasure here at Lakewood Public Library.

Our yearbooks confirm what we know. Times have changed. Consider our first Lakewood High School yearbook from 1903. The eight graduating students are honored with elegant photographs and personal descriptions like the one describing the lovely Stella Colahan, who was by all accounts, “a quiet, unassuming maiden.” Yes, times have changed.

Jungle Safari Show With Katie Bee And Roger Dodger

The summer solstice begins on June 21st this year, but as every parent with school age children knows summer is truly determined by the last day of school. So what are doing to entertain your children this summer? Amid the plans for swim lessons, day camp and trips to Grandma’s, why not make it a point to visit the library? Take us up on our offer of free entertainment and fun. In our line-up of crafts, movies, and registered programs we are also providing live entertainment for the whole family.

Kathy and Roger Divella will be performing as Katie Bee and Roger Dodger to help us use our imaginations to travel on a jungle safari. On our trip we will meet a few jungle animals. There is Vern a wild and wacky bird. Orie; a very ornery, but adorable orangutan. And last but not least, Peanut, the effervescent elephant. Katie Bee does an excellent job as the puppeteer, while Roger Dodger handles the slapstick comedy and balloon animals with ease. It is a delightful show that will have the kids rolling on the floor with laughter.

Jugglers Enjoyed By All

Jugglers from the St. Ignatius Circus Company recently treated an enthusiastic audience at the Lakewood Public Library to a fun-filled program. The entertainers, students at St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, delighted the crowd with a professional juggling show and some magic tricks. There seemed to be a special “connection” between the performers and the boys and girls in the audience because the children could see that the jugglers are not that much older than they are. Following the performance children were invited to come up and “meet the props” and enjoy a quick “learn to juggle” event with tennis balls.

My Sicily: Life In The Cusp Of The Mediterranean Sea: Meet The Author At LPL

If it rhymed it would be a sonnet, if it had a tune it would be a romantic ballad, and although it’s considered a travel guide, "My Sicily: Life in the Cusp of the Mediterranean Sea" remains a love story. That big beautiful island with a thousand scents and colors is the sole object of author Francesca V. Mignosa’s affection in her new book. And good news, this is no tragic romance; Sicily loves her too. To prove it, Mignosa has been named Ambassador of Sicily in the World and has won the Italian Literary Award “Sicilia Mondo 2013.”

Now that the award-winning author is closer to our moody Lake Erie shores than the sun-drenched Mediterranean, Lakewood Public Library is happy to announce she will be the guest speaker at our Meet the Author Series on Friday, May 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium. We hope you can join us for this enjoyable discussion with Francesca V. Mignosa. Copies of her book will be available for sale and signing at the event.

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 Paul Cezanne, Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Michelangelo, Georges Seurat, and Andy Warhol provided the inspiration for the students’ creative efforts. Oil pastels, watercolor paints, clay, tempera, and markers were some of the art mediums used. Each participant took home their creative work, a certificate, and a purple ribbon.

An Evening With Author Stephanie S. Tolan

I am a confirmed book geek. I could pass a well-known athlete on the street without recognition, but if Lemony Snicket were walking down Detroit Avenue I would elbow my grandmother out of my way to get his autograph. Yeah, I am a book geek. I would easily walk around Leonardo DiCaprio, if Cinda Williams Chima was standing behind him. I’ve met several authors through the years that I have worked for the library. Each time it is like I was a kid on Christmas morning opening gifts. I am so excited I can’t sleep the night before, and I am up well before the sun. I am so fascinated to meet someone who has created another world that I get to visit for a few hours. I am so thrilled to listen to someone whose words have resonated in my life. Words that have sometimes made me laugh and sometimes made me cry, sometimes all in the same chapter. I am so happy to be able to help the readers of Lakewood have the same experience.

Lakewood Historical Society: Edgewater: The Industrial Park That Could Have Been

The land where Edgewater Park sits today was coveted by industry in the late 1800s because of its easy access to both water and rail. Fortunately, the City Beautiful movement that swept the nation after the Chicago Columbian Exposition of 1893 inspired our civic leaders to make more attractive use of the land. Eric Deutsch of the Friends of Edgewater State Park tells the whole colorful story with plenty of pictures, maps that give us a new appreciation of our precious public access.

Drumplay Remembers Poet Daniel Thompson at the Library with Special Guests Ernie Krivda, Maj Ragain, Bill Kennedy and Ray McNiece

Too much is lost. The Lakewood Public Library was honored by its brief association with Daniel Thompson, the poet laureate who kept his heart street level, but those performances are mostly gone. We have snippets of video, fuzzy memories and, of course, his poems, but the power of the man has left us and is deeply missed.

To remedy this, the Library has decided to go back in time to recreate one of his legendary collaborations with cosmic percussionists Drumplay and jazz legend Ernie Krivda. Dear friends will carry the man’s voice and words in a poetry recital like no other. Because an event of this magnitude would be hard to contain inside the Library, it will be held on the Library’s Front Porch and belted out into the street where the great man’s legacy belongs. This raucous outdoor concert will take place on Friday, April 19 at 6:00 p.m. Visitwww.lakewoodpubliclibrary.org/poetry to learn more.

We spoke with Drumplay’s James Onysko and asked him to share his thoughts about the event.

Feeling into Poetry; Feeling into Lakewood

"Captain Poetry's Sucker Punch: A Guide to the Homeric Punkhole, 1980-2012" by Kenneth Warren

Kenneth Warren explores how C.G. Jung's psychology of types provides a set of cardinal directions for engaging four records of interactive knowledge spoken through poets, punks, and Lakewood visionaries. The talk will draw on the former Library director’s recent breakthrough book of  history, criticism and imagination, "Captain Poetry's Sucker Punch: A Guide to the Homeric Punkhole, 1980-2012." Joe Napora writes, “If you have any interest in poetry, the poetry that matters, Ken Warren's "Captain Poetry’s Sucker Punch" needs to be your constant companion. It is a critical examination of the past thirty years of poetry (plus some film & music), and it’s a language event in itself, a poetic mirroring of the occasion for its writing of not only what's new but what's newsworthy. The list of writers, essential but too often ignored, is impressive: Kerouac, Snyder, Corso, Wakoski, Acker, Eshleman, Doubiago, Eigner, d. a. levy, Susan Howe, Hirschman, Oppen, Tarn, as well as cultural figures like John Cage, Simone Weil, David Lynch, Bo Diddley, and including the major revision of the Charles Olson and Vincent Ferrini relationship, the importance of Jack Clarke, teacher, scholar, poet, all set in the human context (the Homeric subtitle) that makes even the archaic contemporary.” Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.

Do you have a child under the age of two? Spend a part of your family weekend time clapping your hands, tapping your feet, singing nursery rhymes and, of course, sharing books. Reading with children from the very start is a very important part of early childhood development, and at Lakewood Public Library, we make it lots of fun.

Each Wee Ones session includes reading 2-3 board books aloud, nursery rhymes with movements, singing several songs with fun hand and arm movements, playing with shakers, popping bubbles, and culminates with wheeling a wagon full of board books out at the end for the families to choose from. We provide materials and ideas for families wishing to continue the fun at home.

Wee Ones is offered every weekend throughout the year, and there is no need to register in advance. All children must have a parent, caregiver, or other adult with them at all times who are expected to participate along with their child in the program.

Sue Durante (aka The Bubble Lady) thrilled the crowd by inflating marvelous, magnificent bubbles of all sizes. The feat that drew the most enthusiastic response from the crowd involved a small wading pool filled with sudsy water and a hula hoop with a handle. Children were chosen from the audience to step onto a concrete block that was placed in the center of the pool, and marvel as Sue raised the hoop from the liquid and enveloped them in a giant, glistening bubble. A special concoction of soap, water, and glycerin provided a night of family fun!

Poetry Month Continues At Lakewood Public Library

If grammar holds ideas captive with its rules and conventions, poetry sets them free. Once free, they tend to make all sorts of unusual connections with one another.

On Tuesday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m., Betty Rozakis will talk about  "Coffee with the Subconscious." And on Thursday, April 11, Michelle Disler will join us for a discussion about her book "[Bond, James]: alphabet, anatomy, [auto] biography."

Captain Poetry Kicks Off National Poetry Month

The truth is that everybody likes a good poem now and then.

Maybe it was something that happened to us in school that made us harden our hearts to a literature that has no rules, but thousands of forms. Perhaps we just don’t have the time anymore with all of the world’s songs, books, movies and TV shows invading every waking moment through the telephones in our pockets. Whatever the reason, the fact is that poetry has become a divisive topic in our culture. While some still embrace poetry-- too many do so as a badge of outsider status. Other people just shut down at the mere mention of poetry, labeling it elitist, intellectual or somehow suspect.

But deep down, we all still love the stuff. We know that there is an inherent beauty to words all by themselves—to certain phrases, images and sounds that sound just right. Just consider the delight of a child stumbling onto a pair of rhyming words. And what about the resurgence of magicians, sorcerers and witches in our popular culture? Is there something poetic about a wizened, offbeat character who can transform the world around him by reciting dramatic words marked by alliteration, assonance and rhyme?

Filmmakers Premiere Kubrick Documentary At Lakewood Public Library

Stanley Kubrick has always been someone cinephiles and filmmakers love to hotly debate. His early masterpiece Paths of Glory is considered by experts to be one of the best-constructed and significant American films, but remains one of the most marginalized. The documentary Anatomy of a Film offers an in-depth analysis of the entire picture. Going beyond anything found in DVD extras, this film features an exclusive introduction by star Kirk Douglas and commentary by producer James Harris and cast member Richard Anderson.

A special screening of Anatomy of a Film will be presented at Lakewood Public Library with Director David Spodak and Producer Charles Moore at 6 p.m. on March 30 in the Lakewood Public Library Main Auditorium.

Barrett Showcases St. James' Architectural History At Lakewood Public Library

With its distinctive red tile roof and soaring towers, St. James Catholic Church is one of Lakewood’s most beautiful and well-known landmarks. On Wednesday April 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium, Timothy Barrett will highlight St. James’ architectural history as well as discuss the challenges faced by its builders.

In the early 1900s Rev. Michael Leahy visited Italy and was overwhelmed by its beautiful cathedrals. He returned from Italy full of ideas. Begun in 1912 and completed in 1935, St. James was modeled after the Monreale Cathedral in Sicily, which is one of the world’s best examples of Norman architecture. St. James features many lavish architectural details, including columns crafted from Porta Santa marble.

As part of diocese-wide downsizing, St. James was closed on June 26, 2010. However, following a vigorous campaign by the Friends of St. James and an appeal to the Vatican, St. James was re-opened in July of 2012. The reopening service took place on the feast of St. James the Apostle and was attended by more than 1,400 worshippers.

The Wonderful World Of Bubbles

Bubbles are fun! Bubbles are funny! Bubbles are coming to the Lakewood Public Library! Come witness Sue Durante (aka The Bubble Lady) as she inflates tiny bubbles, long bubbles, giant bubbles, and a remarkable square bubble. Sue searches her home for everyday household items that become the tools for producing remarkable frothy creations. Will she bring a hula hoop, a rope, a mesh strawberry basket, or even a Croc shoe? Whatever she brings will be dipped into a special concoction of soap, water, and glycerin to enable her to blow marvelous, magnificent sudsy balloons. A night of family fun is guaranteed!

This memorable show will take place on Friday, March 22nd at 7:30 p.m. All programs are free and open to the public. Generously funded by the Friends of Lakewood Public Library, this event will be held in the Multipurpose Room, which is located in the Children’s Department.

Tail Waggin' Tutors

Does your school-age child love dogs? Do they like to read, or need time to practice reading? There is a monthly opportunity at the Lakewood Public Library that helps kids bone up on their reading skills by reading to a therapy dog. The dogs and their owners have been certified through Therapy Dogs International. Not only is this a chance for your child to practice their reading out loud, but it is a chance for the friendly canines to practice their listening!

There is no registration required. Simply bring a student by the Multipurpose Room in the Children and Youth Service's Department and select from a collection of books the library staff has assembled, or they may bring their own book. Then the student can snuggle up and read to a therapy dog one-on-one. There are always a few dogs waiting to hear a story, so drop in at any time! The dogs will be happy to see you!

The Tail Waggin’ Tutor sessions that are offered for this spring and summer include: Saturdays, April 13, May 11, June 8, July 13, and August 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Stay tuned for more dates to come in the near future! The program is specifically geared for students age 7 through 12, though younger students are welcome when accompanied by an adult. For questions or more information, please call (216) 226-8275 x140.

Lakewood Public Library Ranked Among Best In The Nation

Lakewoodites can take pride in the fact that, once again, Lakewood Public Library has been recognized for excellence on a national scale. In fact, a look at the numbers reveals that the city’s small, independent library system provides a level of service that outcompetes larger institutions across the nation.

The latest accolade to come the library’s way is a 4-star rating from the prestigious Library Journal (LJ). LJ Index scores measure the levels of library service delivery relative to peer libraries nationally. Lakewood Public Library did very well in its weight class, the $1 million to $5 million expenditure category, but scores for circulation of materials, public program attendance and simple foot traffic would be the envy of much wealthier institutions.

Overall, Northeast Ohio did very well in the latest Library Journal report. You can see how Lakewood’s numbers stack up against other local systems by reading the Director’s Letter in the Spring and Summer 2013 Program Guide.

Know When To Fold 'Em

Fun fact: “origami” literally means folded paper. Well, I suppose that’s not that surprising. What is surprising though, is how incredibly easy it is to make beautiful origami pieces with just a bit of practice.

This spring, Lakewood Public Library is hosting an Origami program for teens. Sixth through twelfth graders can come once a month to try their hand at the art of paperfolding. But it’s not just for beginners- all skill levels are welcome! Novices will be introduced to basic folding terms and techniques, and we will create a simple piece together as a group. Afterward, it’s origami open-studio, with books and supplies at your disposal to try and create whatever you like. Here, the more seasoned orgami artists can shine, and show off their skills to their peers.

Documentary Film

The Woodmans (2010)                         Directed by Scott Willis                                        

Young Francesca Woodman was a photographer ahead of her time. She began in the 1980s, with avant-garde black-and-white nudes while the rest of the photography world obsessed over glossy, vibrant color. Once her work was finally recognized, it became widely influential and has been ever since. But this came years after her tragic death. The child of two talented artists, Francesca defined herself and her art by different standards and made such an impact that it’s hard to believe she did it all in 23 years.

Sunday With The Friends: Kent Dockus: Violin On Fire

No instrument stirs the hidden recesses of the soul quite like the violin, but Lakewood's own Kent Dockus wants more. He likes to add a little juice with a five-string Viper electric, playing everything from classic rock to modern pop with a fiery, classical flourish.

Dockus, who uses audio loop pedals, effect pedals and sequence pedals to create a full orchestra sound with kick, will perform on Sunday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium.

Since he was vaccinated by the Trans Siberian Orchestra and Mark Wood, Dockus has only one passion: to play his Viper for the world. So far, he’s on a great path which includes everything from solo performances to front man for Twin Engine (which Buzzbin Magazine named one of the top ten bands to see).  

Sunday with the Friends takes place nearly every Sunday at 2:00 p.m. These programs, featuring musicians, actors, dancers and scholars, are free and open to everyone thanks to generous funding from the Friends of Lakewood Public Library.
