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!

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.
