Magazines About Books

September includes Banned Books Week so I want to mention some periodicals that provide information on books. Lakeland Library subscribes to Library Journal, The Horn Book Magazine and The New York Review of Books. Each of these periodicals provides reviews of books and articles on authors. Of course there are more magazines that contain book reviews than just the three I mentioned. For information on these resources and more, contact Reference at 440-525-7425 or email .

Welcome to Fall 2022!

Goodbye Summer Hello fall Lakeland Library

It’s great to see the campus so active again after the shutdowns of the pandemic and the languor of summer. Students are already visiting the library to check out textbooks on Reserve or find a serene place to steal a moment or two for reflection. We look forward to supporting Lakeland’s students throughout the academic year as they face the challenges and rigors of college. This newsletter describes a few of the many ways we provide support to students throughout the year: acquiring books and other materials to support the curriculum, teaching information literacy skills to classes and one-on-one to students, designing guides to help students complete research assignments, and promoting and providing space for self-care. Stop by the library to talk with one of Lakeland’s librarians if you’d like to find out more about how we can help you and your students have a great semester!

Read:   "Go Tell It On the Mountain" by James Baldwin

Summary:  "Go Tell It On The Mountain" was James Baldwin's first major work, based in part on his own childhood in Harlem. Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy's discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a Pentecostal storefront church in Harlem. Baldwin's rendering of his protagonist's spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle toward self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understood themselves"-- Provided by the publisher

Banned Books Week

A flock of colorful birds soars over a background of a pile of open books. Text reads: "Celebrate Banned Books Week, September 18-24, 2022. American Library Association logo"

Banned Books Week is an annual celebration of the freedom to read.    

Each year, libraries take this opportunity to highlight the importance of intellectual freedom and remind us not to take the freedom to read for granted.
