Unveiling of Michael Naranjo's bronze sculpture "Eagle Man" and reception honoring Trevor and Jennie Jones
Michael Naranjo, a Tewa Indian of the Santa Clara Pueblo, lost his sight in Vietnam, but he did not lose his dream of becoming a sculptor. His works are diverse in theme, fluid in their movement, each telling a story all its own. Michael's pieces are included in the collections of The Vatican, The White House, and The Heard Museum. Robert Thurmer, Director of the Art Gallery at Cleveland State University, will discuss the artist and his work during the program.
Parking is available at the corner of Chester Avenue & East 24th Street. To reserve a seat or for more information, call 216-875-9734 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

New arrivals from Cleveland Public Library
OhioLINK is Now Providing 10 Million Unique Titles
To visualize how many items 45.5 million is, imagine a bookshelf that stretches from Columbus to Portland, Maine. That would be 878 miles of shelf space, just twenty miles short of the amount needed to accommodate all 45.5 million items.*
The 10,000,000th title is Mexican Modern: Masters of the 20th Century, essays by David Craven and Luis-Martin Lozano. It was added by The Ohio State University Libraries this month.
But don't forget, these 45.5 million physical library items are just the beginning of what OhioLINK and Ohio's academic libraries offer students, faculty and staff. We also have a robust virtual library of 7.5 million scholarly journal articles, 19,000 electronic books, 2,000 digital videos and more. These items are accessible online 24 hours a day, seven days a week at www.ohiolink.edu and our library's Web site.
*Using an average book width of 1.25 inches, 45.5 million books lined up side-by-side on a bookshelf would cover a distance of 898 miles. The distance from Columbus, Ohio to Portland, Maine is 878 miles according to MapQuest.com
