Cleveland Public Library events

Many thanks to the Cleveland Public Library for hosting me for a number of events last week. I conducted two story time and craft events for Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity for children in the Fulton and Langston Hughes branches and a Storytelling with Word and Image Workshop for adults in the beautiful main branch. The librarians and staff I met are not only knowledgeable about their subjects but they know the names of the kids in their communities and if they had lunch. Our libraries and their employees are precious resources
