Maple Heights is the first city in Ohio to boast an early learning center inside its branch of the Cuyahoga County Library.  The center will offer pre-kindergarten age students educational opportunities to help them grow and thrive.  Research has shown that the first 2000 days of a child's life are the most critical for development.  The push for quality pre-K is a nationwide effort.   A new snapshot report finds some states are making bigger investments in their children than others.  Plus remembering Cleveland's "Sax Man"
