On March 15, 2016, the library will propose the renewal of a 1.9-mill operating levy lasting five years and costing the owner of a $100,000 house about $1.12 per week. This is not a new tax and not a tax increase.

The library receives almost half of its funding from this levy, and a little more than half of its funding from the State of Ohio's Public Library Fund. The library operates independently of the Akron-Summit County Public Library and receives no funding from their system.

Renewal of the levy will ensure that resources, hours, and programming are maintained for the library’s 59,000 cardholders.


  • The library will close at 5 p.m. on Thursday, December 31.
  • The library will be closed on Friday, January 1.


Register in person, online, or by calling 330-928-2117. All classes are free.


Through the United Way of Summit County's Imagination Library, preschool children receive free books! Each month, a brand new, age appropriate book will be mailed to every child enrolled. With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy of finding their very own book in their mailboxes. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program the book they receive is “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.” All children ages birth to five in Summit County are eligible! Sign up here:


  • Monday – Thursday: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday: 12 to 5 p.m.
