CLEVELAND-- Before kids go back to school, there is a program that's helping them pick back those books and start reading again. It's called "Literary Lots" where a vacant lot in Clevelandis being turned scenes from children's books.

The lot is located in Novak Park (on the corner of Bridge and Fulton) in Ohio City. It is right next to the Cleveland Library's Carnegie West Branch.

The program runs from Saturday, August 3 to Saturday, August 17. Daily programs are from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., with 5 evening programs scattered throughout. The schedule and additional information can be viewed at www.literarylots.org.
