Stow, Ohio was first settled in 1804. Known as Stow Corners, the intersection of what are now Darrow (Rt. 91) and Kent (Rt. 59) Roads, was the center of community life for many years. Stow Corners held a post office in the home of Titus Wetmore, a stagecoach stop, a tavern, a school, and several residences in the early 19th century.
After a year of preparation, we are now one of the first libraries in Summit County with an internet connection speed of 100 megabits per second (Mbps). Our speed has just upgraded from 10 to 100 Mbps which means our library now has one of the fastest internet connections in the state of Ohio! This was a FREE upgrade from AT&T and OPLIN (Ohio Public Library Information Network) due to the high level of internet usage in our library.
