Ohio Center for the Book

During the past few centuries the state of Ohio has proved to be a place of great fecundity in terms of producing outstanding authors, poets, and literary curmudgeons of all stripes. Ohioans clearly love to read, and this is demonstrated by the fact that the Cleveland Public Library is the home to the Ohio Center for the Book, and has served in this capacity since 1977. The Center promotes books, reading, libraries, and literacy throughout the entirety of the state, and also serves as a catalyst for collaboration among readers, authors, publishers, educators, and other bibliophiles. From the main page, visitors can learn about book-related events happening across the state, and may even do so by browsing by geographic region. A welcome find on the site is the Interactive Literary Map of Ohio that features an interactive map where users may click on at their leisure to learn about the literary figures that have emerged from various parts of the state. Overall, a lovely site and one that merits several visits.
