CAN YOU SPOT SPIKE?
After more than 25 years of life in a tank, Spike the Library Turtle has finally decided to see some of the world – starting with Stow and Munroe Falls. Spike has a new job. As library ambassador, she has been given the task to see what there is to see in this community and strengthen the library’s relationship the citizens of Stow and Munroe Falls. Miss Kristin and Miss Amy from the children’s department will follow Spike around and document her travels for you to watch. Check our Web site periodically to see short movies of where Spike has been, who she meets and what kinds of things she gets herself into in Stow and Munroe Falls. Spike may even venture beyond this community. Stay tuned!

We invite children and parents to enjoy our large collection of books for children and young adults. We offer learning tools including Playaway Views, games and Launchpads, as well as DVD's and audio books for kids.
We think reading is so important that we have devoted our entire second floor to serving children and their parents with great reading and learning opportunities. Weekly events include storytimes, crafting and educational presentations.
Everyday access to computers is part of our mission, and if parents approve it, children can use our state-of-the-art computer technology for learning, games and printing.
Check out our Children's Events calendar to learn about upcoming programs, or ask our Children's librarians. We look forward to your next visit!

Reading is cool and so is being a member of this exciting library club!

Children may join the club at any time during the school year. To earn a patch, readers can read 10 books in each category - either chosen from our Reading Club lists or on their own.
