The Shaker Heights Public Library and the City of Shaker Heights Landmark Commission together have received two statewide preservation awards, the Public Education and Awareness Award from the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, and the Archives Achievement Award from the Ohio Historic Records Advisory Board, for the creation of HistoricShaker.com, a publicly accessible digital record of building history in Shaker Heights. Congratulations to project coordinators Meghan Hays, Local History Librarian at the Shaker Heights Public Library and Ann Klavora, senior planner in the City of Shaker Heights Planning Department!
The Greater Cleveland History Digital Library Consortium / Cleveland Archival Roundtable will hold a joint meeting on January 21st, at 6:30 p.m. at the Shaker Heights Public Library to learn about how this project came to be and what Meghan and Ann learned from it that might be of utility for those of us with paper-based records we would like to put on-line in this fashion.
The event will be held at the Shaker Heights Main Library, 16500 Van Aken Boulevard, Shaker Heights. Parking is accessed from Lee Road or Chagrin Boulevard.
If you know you can come, please RSVP to Bill Barrow at firstname.lastname@example.org. But whatever you said or didn’t, feel free to attend in any event.
