Cleveland has been chosen as a finalist in JetBlue's Soar With Reading contest. Not only does the winning city receive a donation of more than $25,000 in children's books, it also gets a reading room makeover in one of the city's local libraries.

The contest, started in 2011, is part of an effort from JetBlue to encourage reading among youth in undeserved communities. Since 2015, the company  has also distributed vending machines in major cities filled with free books.

Cleveland is competing with 15 other major cities around the country, all of which are JetBlue market areas, including Atlanta, Buffalo, Orlando and more. The winning city is selected through online voting, which ends August 31.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
