Want to hear the stories about Mentor’s remarkable history that don’t make the history books? Hear them from historian Thomas Matowitz at Mentor Public Library.

As part of our 200th anniversary, we’re exploring Mentor’s history. And nobody knows more about the city of Mentor than historian Thomas Matowitz. He literally wrote the book on it.

Matowitz is the perfect person to discuss prominent Mentor families like the Garfields, landmarks like the Wildwood Estate, and more. But he also has a mindful of spectacular Mentor stories that nearly nobody else knows.

You can hear some of Matowitz’s rare and untold stories during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, at our Main Branch. The talk is free to attend and open to all. We only ask that you can register beforehand. You can sign up by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

For more from Matowitz:

Speaking of our 200th anniversary, you can also join us for our anniversary party at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 12, on the Read House lawn. Help make a community mosaic of Mentor with Gail Christofferson of Animal House Glass.

Also, Tom Todd, the Amazing One Man Band, will perform from 6 to 7 pm. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, sit back and enjoy  a little bit of Jimmy Buffett. We will also have cake and contests. All are welcome and no registration is required for our party.
