With the most recent app update, Libby now has eight fun new features that make it even easier to download and enjoy your favorite ebooks and audiobooks!

  1. Borrow and place holds on the same title at multiple libraries.
  2. “Gems” clean up your shelves by renewing or returning items early for you.
  3. Improved tags help you track your books better and let you read samples.
  4. Reading progress and current loan status gives you a better feel for how far you are in your book before it needs renewed or returned.
  5. Shelf tips provide a heads up when other users are waiting and a handful of other useful items.
  6. Users will find the shelf summary view easier to gather quick information about checked out books
  7. A simplified wait list view will allow you to see your estimated wait time for a title. This feature includes a calendar icon that will show your progress in line.

Auto-Renewals

Posted by ayurosko on

In November, the Cuyahoga Falls Library launched a system update allowing all eligible items borrowed by library cardholders to be automatically renewed. We will renew your items automatically provided your account is in good standing and the materials have not been reserved by someone else. No action is required by you.

This means any library item checked out from the Cuyahoga Falls Library will be automatically renewed unless one of the following circumstances prevents renewal.

Items will not be renewed if:

  • Another customer places a request on that item.
  • The item has reached its maximum number of renewals.
  • Fines on the account have reached $10.
  • Your account activity has been blocked.
  • The item is a digital eMaterial.

You will not be notified that your item has been automatically renewed. We recommend checking your account status online or via our mobile app.

Please call 330-928-2117 ext. 2001 if you have questions. You can also view our check-out policy page for a full listing of loans and limits.

Your Library History

Posted by ayurosko on

We have had patrons ask if there is a way to access books previously checked out. There is! However, your reading history is not active until you “opt-in.” To do this, login to your account, choose “reading history” in the column on the left and click “save reading history.”

A few quick notes about reading history:
Reading history will not include items you’ve checked out from SearchOhio, OhioLINK or ebooks. You may be able to find your reading history within specific apps such as Libby, Hoopla and Flipster.

You can also delete items from your reading history. If you decide you would no longer like to keep track of your history, navigate back to “reading history” and click “opt-out. ”

For privacy concerns, it should be noted that this record is inaccessible to library staff.

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.
