Library Updates

Check Out Our New “Library of Things”

Posted by thite on

The Library of Things is now available for checkout! Visit the circulation desk to check out a Roku Stick that allows you to access a Netflix subscription for free. Other options include a jewelry-making kit, Brain Flakes (construction toys), or a phone charger. Coming-soon items include a crochet starter kit, a knitting weaving loom and a set of Blocks Rocks. While you’re visiting, check out books on 3D printing, quilting, tinkering, circuits and more that are a part of this display. Do you have ideas for other items that should be a part of our Library of Things? We’d love to hear about them!

New printing costs are now in effect at the library. An increase, our first in many years, is necessary due to paper, ink, and equipment costs.

Printing
– The cost to print in black and white will increase from $.05 to $.10
– The cost to print in color will increase from $.25 to $.75

The price for copying in black and white will remain the same at 10 cents per page.

Imagination Library

Posted by thite on

Through the United Way of Summit County’s Imagination Library, preschool children receive free books! Each month, a brand new, age-appropriate book will be mailed to every child enrolled. With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy of finding their very own book in their mailboxes. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program the book they receive is “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.”

All children age birth to five in Summit County are eligible! Click here to sign up.

Staff Spotlight

Posted by thite on

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.
