Cleveland Public Library has been at the cutting edge of library services since the late 1800’s when it became the first large, urban public library to "open the stacks" to the public. What are "open stacks," you ask? It is the once radical idea of allowing library patrons to browse the stacks, look at books, and select for themselves what they wanted. Previously—and in many public libraries for years afterwards—patrons had to tell a librarian what book they wanted, or what subject piqued their interest, and a library employee would retrieve books for the patron. Only librarians had direct access to the books. Can you imagine if libraries still worked like this?

If you live in, near, or just frequent the Gordon Square Arts District/Detroit Shoreway neighborhood you may have noticed a flurry of activity the past couple of weeks. There have been men running around with cameras, and various men and women standing around with clipboards and earpieces looking official. All of the activity seemed to have centered on a bevy of pop-up stores hosted by a handful of local entrepreneurs.
Curious about how the Republican Convention is going to impact Cleveland (my new home, but actually in Lakewood and more people know where Cleveland is than Lakewood), wondering how the city is preparing for it and being a former member of the NYC Press Corps, I did some digging around and stumbled upon the Destination Cleveland site through some connections I had at my "Faces of Lakewood" Twitter page.
Exploring businesses in the neighborhood you may have come to familiarize yourself with a lot of diverse murals. Several of them are painted by me! I'm Haley Morris and have lived around the near west side since 2009.

His name is Bob. There’s a fantastic chance you know who he is already. Better yet, there is a fantastic chance that you know of him already. After all, we are learning together that to be “known of” and to be “known” are two different things. Our goal with this project is to put names to the faces, and share stories that go along with the individuals.
