Tributes to Harvey Pekar at libraries in Cleveland and inner suburbs

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.


That's the new name for the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations, ALTAFF, created when the Friends of Libraries USA (FOLUSA) merged with ALA's Association of Library Trustees and Advocates (ALTA). Both organizations have been around for a long time.
