Thank you to everyone who joined us during National Library Week at Mentor Public Library.
We had a lot happening—seriously, a lot—so you may have missed something. Here’s a chance to catch up on all author talks, guest speakers, cupcake contests and more!
- Bestselling author Virginia Nelson—the writer of Penthouse Prince, the Odd Stuff series, and dozens of more snarky, slinky romances—had a lot to say when she visited our Main Branch. She discussed how a health scare goaded her into pursuing a writing career and the implied sexism of maligning the romance genre.
- Teens had a sweet, sweet contest at our Lake Branch. They had a Cupcake War where they each decorated their cupcake based on the book of their choice—from Harry Potter to Wonder Woman to the Dork Diaries.
- Young ballet enthusiasts got to learn some moves from our friends at The Fine Arts Association.
- The nascent writers from our Wordplay Club used magnetic words, drawing, and picture prompts to craft their own poems. (It is National Poetry Month, after all.)
- Bill Urbanski, a docent from Cleveland Natural Natural History, discussed Ohio’s prehistoric people—their tools, their world, and those phenomenal mounds they built. Here are five fun facts from his talk.
The weather even cooperated, so we could give away some free books from our Pop-Up Library at Brentmoor Elementary and Eleanor Garfield Park.
National Library Week may be over, but the learning never is. We already have Money Smart Week coming up, after all.
So check out our event calendar and see all the programs and events coming to Mentor Public Library.
