Akron could be a small town in the midwest but their library has nothing below the best in the world. Strongly recommended to visit and check!

Summit County Libraries are well designed, and have amazing resources for children and adults alike. The main library has more resources on-hand, but most all are available at the satellite branches. One of the few tax-supported entities in Summit County that are worth their cost.

Get on the website and find activity days for kids. The staff is the best of the best and activities are most appropriate for toddlers. Let grandma & grandpa go and enjoy watching their grandkids. FUN

I came home from Germany and decided to visit the library. Oh my gosh it is fantastic and easy to maneuver through the library. Very clean and friendly. A great place to read or achieve your educational goals in quietness.

This is a very clean and quiet library to go and get a great new read. The employees are always helpful and there is a drop box to drop of your books if they are closed.

There is a hug variety of books, but the children's area needs updated and cleaned badly. The toys are old and dirty. Half of the computers were out of order the day we visited.
