Happy Thanksgiving!

A Note From the Executive Director

With our move to remote work quickly approaching, I want to share our new phone number and mailing address. 
12701 Ravenwood Drive, Chardon, Ohio 44024
We will still have access to our Hudson office until the end of the year, however we will be working remotely starting in December. During the transition, the best way to get in touch with NEO-RLS staff is via email. We appreciate your patience as we establish our new workflows. 
I would also like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to those that celebrate. NEO-RLS will be closed Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th for Thanksgiving. 
Have a great day!

"Wakanda Doesn't Have Suburbs": Virtual Climate Change Article Discussion
When: 02 Dec 2022 10:00 AM, EST Where: Online

We will be hosting a virtual discussion centered around an essay from the compilation volume, All We can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson.

We will be discussing "Wakanda Doesn't Have Suburbs: How Movies Like Black Panther Could Help Us Save the Planet", by Kendra Pierre-Louis, which is freely available online from Time magazine in addition to being published as an essay in the book. You can also find this essay available in audio format through the podcast Temperature Check. The essay is short, thought-provoking, and hopeful. We are looking forward to an equally thought-provoking discussion of our takeaways from the essay and how academic libraries can take action to support a hopeful and more sustainable future.  Click the event link for more information.
