RESOLUTION TO RENAME THE TEEN DEPARTMENT OF THE MAIN BRANCH OF THE EAST CLEVELAND PUBLIC LIBRARY TO THE SHIRELLDA HELEN TERRY TEEN DEPARTMENT

WHEREAS, Shirellda Helen Terry was a beloved member of our community, and

 

WHEREAS, her life was cut short by one of the greatest tragedies ever to befall the East Cleveland Community, and

 

WHEREAS, in honoring Shirellda Helen Terry, we honor not only her, but also her family and the countless other Black women and girls that have been similarly taken away from us, and

 

WHEREAS, for four hundred years in America, Black life in general, and Black female life in particular, have been denied the respect and honor that is their just due, and

WHEREAS, we have an obligation to strive to ensure that the lives of all of our people are treated with the full respect, honor and dignity that their humanity demands, and

 

WHEREAS, the fight to keep the East Cleveland Public Library INDEPENDENT was predicated upon ensuring that the authority to bestow such an honor remained firmly in the hands of the people of East Cleveland

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Board of Trustees of the East Cleveland Public Library, that the Teen Department and authorization be provided to the Director of teh East Cleveland Public Library for the installtion of signage and a memorial plague, which shall be funded by the East Cleveland Public Library and such parties as shall see fit to donate monies for said purpose.
