Author Visit with Will Hillenbrand Authors at MCDL Sat., Nov. 5, all ages Buckeye - 10:30 am Brunswick - 1:30 pm Medina - 4:00 pm Free event: Register at any MCDL location or mcdl.info/Readers Presented by MCDL and the Friends of MCDL Books Unite Us, Censorship Divides Us Medina County youth and teens have an opportunity to express their freedom to read through art. The inspiration for this is the 2022 Banned Books Week theme. Participants at library locations and residents at the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center will paint a canvas depicting what censorship means to them. The creations will be combined into a mural that will be on rotating display at MCDL locations. It will take permanent residence in Medina Library’s Teen Department in the spring. This endeavor was made possible through a grant from the Freedom to Read Foundation and is a partnership with the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center and Access the Arts, a local non-profit providing arts education for at-risk populations.
