The Akron-Summit County Public Library will be a collection site for Harvest for Hunger donations during the month of April. You can drop food at any of our locations in April.
National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.
Libraries have been loaning books for it seems like forever, and music and DVDs for just about as long. But, sometimes, you want to do more than read all about it – you want to really experience something.
The people at the Akron-Summit County Public Library know how you feel. We’re creating a Library of Things – Things you can check out and use right in your own home. Things like original, framed artwork and small kitchen appliances. Things you can search for on our catalog, and place a hold on, and check out with your library card. Things you borrow, and then return so they can be shared with others in our community.
The Akron-Summit County Public Library’s Science and Technology Division reached a rather unique milestone. The librarians who index the Science Project Index books (www.akronlibrary.org/scienceprojects) recently indexed the 50,000th experiment.
