Akron-Summit County Public Library Reviews
I enjoyed the open atmosphere of the library and the ease of parking to complete some research. Staff was very helpful and only wish I had more time to spend at the library. more »

I can't imagine a resource someone would need either as an educator, job seeker, business professional, or student that the Library doesn't have. The staff is generally very friendly and helpful, it's a big facility, and there is plenty of room to find a quiet workspace. The Library is right in the middle of downtown Akron, so there is plenty of places around to break for lunch (or dinner). There are plenty of public events like free movie nights and meeting resources, like rooms for rent, for companies or organizations. On top of all that, they stay on the cutting edge with regards to technology with green screen and recording studios, vinyl and 3D printers, a laser engraver, internet access, and much more! The Library is very community oriented as well and contributes to several local organizations in various ways. The Library is a tremendous asset in the Akron area that everyone, regardless of age, should make time to explore.
