Participants in Central Ohio who are registered for the reading group will receive a copy of On the Landing to read and return to the library after the book discussion. On the Landing is also accessible on Hoopla for participants outside of Central Ohio.
Bexley Public Library has been selected as a participating library for the Yiddish Book Center's "Stories of Exile" Reading Groups for Public Libraries for 2023. We began this year-long series with an in person discussion on May 15 of On the Landing: Stories of Yenta Mash, but we're offering a virtual session as well due to patron feedback.
About the reading group:
The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is a reading and discussion program to engage teens and adults in thinking about experiences of displacement, migration, and diaspora. In this program, librarians organize reading groups to discuss three books of Yiddish literature in translation, and one book related to the experience of a community served by their library. The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.
