Heights Libraries serves up summer lunch and learning

With the school year over, many children and teens in the Heights who rely on free or low-cost school lunches are potentially facing a hungry summer. To help prevent this, Heights Libraries is once again hosting the Cleveland Food Bank-sponsored free summer lunch program at the Lee Road Library through Aug. 10.

Heights Libraries’ partnership with the Cleveland Food Bank began in 2010 in response to the growing number of children spending long hours at the library, often without parental supervision. Also, large numbers of patrons, many of them parents with young children, were using library computers to apply for jobs and seek other employment resources.

Heights Libraries’ new self-checkout system saves money and time

In May, customers at Heights Libraries found it easier than ever to check out their materials with a new CircIT self-charge system.

CircIT is an easy-to-use touch-screen check-out system that is more accurate and powerful than the old system. It has brighter, more precise barcode scanners that will result in faster checkout and  fewer check-out errors. The new screens are also brighter and easier to read, so customers can more readily see messages about overdue fines, hold items, and other materials-related issues.

“The new system is not only easier for our customers to use, but also easier for our staff to fix and maintain,” said Nancy Levin, Heights Libraries director. “And CircIT costs roughly half what the old system did. That’s a big savings for taxpayers.”

Heights Libraries wins grant to continue American Sign Language classes

The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library has received a $3,000 grant to pay for free American Sign Language (ASL) classes for adults at the Coventry Village Library. The money is from the Friends of the Society for the Deaf, a fund of the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center. Instructors from Cleveland SignStage Theatre will teach the classes.

“These free classes fill a need in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community,” said Ben Guylas, adult services librarian and deaf services coordinator. “I just had a call from a woman who is losing her hearing. She wants to make sure that she and her family are prepared for when she loses her hearing completely. They can’t afford to pay for classes, so they are all taking our classes—herself, her husband, and their children. She was very thankful and appreciative.”

An admittedly premature review: 'The Hunger Games'

“Have you read The Hunger Games,” she asked.

“No,” was my reply. I could tell she was disappointed. I picked it up from the Lee Road Library shortly thereafter. In the last chapter I read, the protagonist (Katniss) had scaled a tree in order to escape a group of teenagers who were out to kill her. To kill her. As I walked my dog this morning around Doan Creek I paused and looked up at the autumn trees. Could I scale that tree? Where would I rope myself in for the night like she did in the book – hoping for a few hours of rest before running again from the killing mob. Even when I was 16 I don’t know if I could be scaling any tree high enough to avoid such danger.
