Friends of Heights Libraries to host African American Read-In

The Friends of Heights Libraries will host an African American Read-In at 2 p.m. on Feb. 10 at the Lee Road Library, 3456 Lee Road.

The public is invited to come and share a five-minute reading by an African-American author, or be part of the audience. Students and adults are welcome.

The African American Read-In is sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English. The goal is to make the celebration of the African-American literary legacy a traditional part of Black History Month.

“This will be the third time that our library is hosting,” said Joni London, Friends board member. Interested readers should contact London at 216-321-7695. For suggested reading lists, visit

Refreshments will be served and a tour of the library will follow.

Friends of Heights Libraries is a group of enthusiastic library supporters united by a common interest in the continued well-being of our libraries. The group promotes interest in and appreciation and use of the four branches of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library.
