The library will be closed this Monday, September 7, in observance of the Labor Day holiday. No library materials are due on any day that the library is closed.
The library is pleased to partner with the Stark County Office of the OSU Agricultural Extension Service to host its Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. Beginning on Tuesday, September 8, at 7:00 pm, Danielle Massey will teach an eight-week workshop focusing on nutrition, physical activity, and parenting practices to help families succeed in making healthy changes. Each week includes useful tips on shopping and meal planning, help with picky eaters, information on new foods, recipes with samples, exercise and health information, and much more. A snack is included during each workshop along with fun giveaways to help create a healthy lifestyle. This free program focuses on parents with children, but all are welcome. The sessions meet in the library’s Community Meeting Room and no registration is required.
(August 20, 2015) Another school year begins and we are happy to welcome students back to the library.

The library is having maintenance work done on the electrical system and will be closed all day this Thursday. In order to have time to make sure things are working correctly, the library will not open until noon on Friday, August 14. Library voicemail will not be available most of Thursday. Coincidentally, the library catalog will also be down much of Thursday for an upgrade. No library materials are due on days the library is closed.
