The Washington Post caught up with The Cleveland Club by running a story about Forest City's work here in Washington. The story appeared on page D1 of the Monday, January 1, Business Section. Gary McManus, Forest City's Washington Director of Marketing, gave a lively presentation to the Club in September of Forest City's tremendous projects. If you missed the Club event, try to find and read the article.

We all knew it anyway, but Cleveland ranks as one of the most literate cities in the nation. Taking into account such factors as branch libraries per capita, volumes per capita, library book circulation per capita, Cleveland ranks 14th. Cleveland ranks 1st in library support, holdings and utilization. See the Central Connecticut State University study at www.ccsu.edu/amlc06/Library/top10.htm
