The Stark County District Library has been serving Stark County, Ohio, for 125 years, and is adept at responding to the needs of its community. Through strong early literacy efforts for mothers and their children, art and theater programs for Stark County kids, and employment assistance classes and job fairs for out-of-work adults, the library is able to fulfill its mission of “inspiring ideas, enriching lives, and creating community.” For a county rebuilding after a widespread economic downturn, this mission – and the varied and effective programming it has spurred – is a promise that the library will remain a constant in Stark County, and be there to help the community recover and ultimately flourish.
