Cuyahoga Falls Library needs your help!

We are planning for the future and want to hear from you. Between Aug. 28 and Sept. 30 we have a brief questionnaire you can complete online at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/CuyahogaFallsLibraryCommunitySurvey

If you prefer to complete a paper questionnaire, please visit the Library. The information you share will be used in preparing a Strategic Plan. CFL wants to be certain that library collections, services, spaces, and programs are responsive to community needs, changing technology, and social trends.

Attend a focus group

Cuyahoga Falls Library will be creating a Strategic Plan for the next three to five years. The Strategic Plan is a collaborative and deliberate planning process designed to ensure that library collections, services, and programs are responsive to community needs, changing technology and social trends. Planning is a powerful tool used to guide the library to improve, to prioritize and to ensure that all staff are working toward the same goals based on feedback from the community. Community stakeholders are encouraged to attend this free event and will have an opportunity to participate in a community survey.

Staff Spotlight: Michelle Spencer

Posted by thite on

How long have you worked at the library?
I’ve worked at the library for a year and four months.

What do you like best about your position?
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always pictured myself in a job where I’m surrounded by books all day. Well, here I am! I love seeing the variety of things to read and talking with patrons and other staff members about their favorites.

Who are your favorite authors?
C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Neil Gaiman.

Is there something about you that might surprise people?
I am a powerlifter and can deadlift over 200 pounds.

What are your hobbies?
Outside of reading (I feel that should be obvious!), I love to ride my horse, go hiking and running, play with my dog, do counted cross-stitch, and go on dates with husband.

How would you describe Cuyahoga Falls Library?
It’s a family! I absolutely love my co-workers and the relationships I’ve made here with everybody. It’s a wonderful place to work and be a patron. Can’t wait to see everybody in the stacks! Tell me what you’re reading when you see me!
