Your Library Reimagined How Stark County's Oldest Library Is Innovating for the Future

ng Comi ! Soo n

24/7 Access

New RFID Technology

Mobile App

We plan to expand the best of these ideas to other locations in the future. Stop by the Jackson Township branch to try it out and tell us what you think.

You’ll soon be able to check out multiple items in one scan, making it even faster to check out. Our librarians will also be able to check-in, inventory and process materials faster. This means more materials and a shorter wait for you.

Put the Smart Store in your pocket by downloading the app on the Apple App Store or Google Play.

We've been testing new technologies in the 24/7 Lobby at our Jackson location. You can pick up your materials after hours with our pickup lockers, grab a movie or video game from the media box, or browse the book vending machine to feed your late night book craving.

Extended Phone Hours

Need to place a hold, register for an event, or get tech help with your mobile device, but the library is closed? We can help you with all that and more by phone for more hours each day than ever! Reach us at 330.452.0665 during these hours: Monday– Friday 7 am –11 pm Saturday 9 am – 9 pm Sunday Noon– 9 pm

You might notice some extra work going on this summer. We're making our systems smarter and easier to use by putting RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags on our materials.

Don't Sweat Unexpected Delays—We're Fine Free

Life happens! You can't always make it to the library on time. Don't worry—if you happen to return your books and DVDs a little late you won’t owe a dime. That's right, we eliminated fines for overdue materials! Learn more about the Fine Free policy at StarkLibrary.org/NoFines.

Take the Smart Store® with you wherever you go with our mobile app! Browse, reserve and renew your items from anywhere. Spot a great book while you're out? Simply scan the barcode to search our collection and reserve it. Plus you can leave your library card at home and use the virtual card to check out instead.

Online Assistance

Need help getting your library card, finding something on the website, putting materials on hold, or getting help with our mobile apps? Use our friendly chat option at StarkLibrary.org!
