Library Updates

Staff Spotlight

Joyce Bigam, Children’s Services Coordinator

How long have you worked at Cuyahoga Falls Library? Almost 15 years

What do you like best about your position? I find child development fascinating and I love observing it on a daily basis, especially that “ah ha” moment when a child discovers she can sound out the syllables of a word, read a sentence or make a castle out of blocks. I also love serving and interacting with patrons of all ages, including parents, grandparents and caregivers.

Who are your favorite authors? I’ll stick with picture book authors. I love Nancy Tafuri, Denise Fleming, Il Sung Na and Karen Katz. I also think Mo Willems is brilliant, and somehow thoroughly understands the mind of a child.

Is there something about you that might surprise people? I have a bit of a sense of adventure and have gone parasailing, white water rafting and ziplining, and I’d love to try skydiving.

What are your hobbies? Cycling, exercising, reading, cooking, dancing, and a little travel – especially to the beach.

How would you describe Cuyahoga Falls Library? The library is an excellent place to learn something new, revisit an old favorite, play with new friends, discover and create. It is society’s great equalizer and provides something for everyone. The Children’s Department is newly renovated and beautiful, and I encourage the public to stop in to enjoy it.

Levy Renewal – Issue 21

Posted by thite on

On March 15, 2016, Cuyahoga Falls Library will propose the renewal of a 1.9-mill operating levy lasting five years. This is not a new tax and not a tax increase. The levy currently costs the owner of a $100,000 house about $1.12 per week, and that will not change.

The library receives 48% of its funding from this local levy, and approximately 49% of its funding from the State of Ohio’s Public Library Fund.

Renewal of the levy will ensure that resources, hours, and programming are maintained for the library’s 59,000 cardholders.
