The Community Church News (CCN) is a 15-volume bound set of Community Church of Stow newsletters ranging from 1934 to 1948. Each volume has 52 issues containing articles, essays, and tidbits about local people and events during two important time periods in American history – the Great Depression and World War II. The CCN is a cultural spotlight on the daily life of Stow and Munroe Falls residents during the middle of the twentieth century.
Two new booklets have been added to the Local History collection.
Both are by local author Sharon Myers of Silver Lake, Ohio. Both items are available on the Local History counter for patrons to view. They are not available for check-out.
