Literary Cleveland Shares Video Celebrating Indie Bookstore Day
Since local bookstores couldn’t open their doors for Indie Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 26, many shared a peek inside their home bookshelves. Folks from Appletree Books, the Bookshop in Lakewood, Fireside Book Shop, Loganberry Books, Mac’s Backs Books and Visible Voice Books gave us secrets to their organization at home, what they’re reading, and some book recommendations. Plus, they shared how to order from their stores — giving us another reason to continue to read and learn during our time at home. youtube.com

Cuyahoga Valley National Park Receives Donation
It’s no secret that many of Subaru’s drivers love the outdoors. And now thanks to Subaru’s “Share the Love” annual campaign, Cascade Subaru in Cuyahoga Falls made a donation of more than $30,000 to the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. For every new Subaru purchased or leased at the local dealership from mid-November until the end of 2019, the Conservancy received $250 from Subaru thanks to buyers who chose the nonprofit as their preferred charity.
