Virtual Classes for Local Schools

Posted by ayurosko on

The Cuyahoga Falls Library (CFL) recently launched a new virtual program series for local schools. Missy Littell, customer experience manager at CFL, is leading the 3D Print and MakerSpace program along with Carolanne Tkach, technology trainer. St. Joseph Parish School piloted the program that other local schools can replicate.

CFL held the first class remotely in October, and subsequent programs have continued for grades five through eight. October classes were virtual tours of the MakerSpace with a paper circuit activity at the end. The library distributed kits ahead of time so students could follow along live.  November classes were 3D print design and all students made a bookmark. Bookmarks were printed and delivered to the school after the course ended.

“We are excited to bring the MakerSpace to students,” says Missy Littell, who organized the program and leads the library’s MakerSpace and tech classes. “We know teachers face new challenges with COVID-19. This partnership is one of many ways the library can offer critical support and variety to the lesson plans. We strive to be a continued resource for STEM growth and educational development.”

For teachers interested in offering similar programs to their class, please contact Missy Littell mlittell@cuyahogafallslibrary.org or call 330.928.2117 x155. Virtual classes can be customized to suit the needs of grades 2-12. For more information on virtual MakerSpace programs for all ages, visit www.cuyahogafallslibrary.org/calendar

Issue 45: Library Levy Passed!

Posted by ayurosko on

Thank you for your support of the Cuyahoga Falls Library Levy Issue 45, which passed at 67.5%. This levy ensures continued investment in the library and the communities we serve. We are committed to providing quality service, growing our collection, making necessary building updates, developing important collaborations with schools, and offering great programming for children, students, and adults in our community. We look forward to our future as a community and a safe, positive library experience every step of the way. Thank you to our community, dedicated staff, and board members for this success!

We pledge to adapt and fine-tune services, technology, programming, and materials collections without increasing taxes for the next five years.  We will provide a robust collection of physical and digital books. We pledge to continually improve computer and online services, maintain the building for the next generation, provide expanded educational programming to students and technology programming for all ages.  We’ve already started by offering a multitude of library programs virtually from storytimes to MakerSpace partnerships with local schools.  We’re reformulating services to support career readiness, workforce skills training, and community economic development.  We also recognize families need time to connect by having fun—our Library of Things offers robotics, games, and crafting tools.  Unwind with music or a DVD.  We look forward to serving you in person, online, or through our drive-thru window.
