Sandusky Library was one of 208 to receive a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to host The Big Read in Erie County. The NEA presents The Big Read in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and in cooperation with Arts Midwest.
The Big Read is an initiative designed to restore reading to the center of American culture. Sandusky Library, along with its Castalia and Kelleys Island branches, will join with the other four libraries in Erie County — Bellevue, Huron, Vermilion (Ritter), and Milan-Berlin — to present a second countywide reading project. The Big Read: Erie County Reads To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee will kick-off at 1 p.m. Saturday at Sandusky Mall and will include a mock trial in the third floor of the Erie County Courthouse on at 7 p.m. March 23.
