The Akron-Summit County Public Library provides resources for learning and leisure, information services, meeting spaces, and programs for all ages that support, improve, and enrich individual, family, and community life.
Reference information, computers, a variety of library materials, AND informational and recreational programs!
Great little used book store (Library Shop on Main) on the first floor. Most books for sale for only $1.
You'll hand them your library card and they don't hand it back; they put it on the counter. If they never look or talk to you ... SCORE! If you're looking for rude, you've hit the jackpot here!
If you go to the library before 6, and park in the parking deck, bring your ticket inside and have it validated at the security desk. Parking is free for 1 hour with validation.
Check out the free feature length movies every Thursday in the Auditorium at 6:30 pm.
There's a delightful gift shop and used book store on the first floor. The Library on Main has many books priced at $1 or less.
Story times and family programs that rock!
