Comic book writer Harvey Pekar, known for the American Splendor series, is reported by The News-Herald as receiving honors from the Cleveland Public Library and the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library System. Apparently the American Library Association has a United for Libraries division which named the branch in Cleveland Heights a Literary Landmark due to its connections with Pekar.

Both libraries are part of the CLEVNET consortium that stretches along the south shore of Lake Erie in Northern Ohio.
