The Stark Library system, consisting of our Main Library, nine branches, and four Bookmobiles, serves 70,000 library card holders.
• 2 million people visit our locations each year.
• We offer access to over 831,500 items, including books, e-materials, and periodicals for all ages.
• Patrons borrow almost 4 million items annually.
• We serve the residents in 12 local school districts, as one of the largest library systems in the state of Ohio.
Beyond the numbers, the Library provides programs and classes for adults, teens, and children, computer and Internet access, a downloadable collection of books and music, Reference and Genealogy services, as well as Outreach services to shut-ins and nursing homes.
Our tagline - Inviting. Informing. Transforming. - expresses our hope that all people will feel welcome to make use of our resources, will learn and grow as a result, and then will use their newfound knowledge and inspiration to positively impact the world around them.
