Celebrating Pride in Library Day 2010!

Here are some photos of Pride in Library Day events: the Dixieland Jazz concert, the Pet Show, the Family Treasure Hunt, and the Juggler. We also promoted our Playaway audiobook format with a giveaway, and Handel's Ice Cream gave out free treats. Stow and Munroe Falls citizens love their library, and we love our patrons!

New Fees & Fines

ohio_statehouse_credit_rod_berry.png

Due to economic uncertainties and a decline in public library revenue from the State, the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library will be increasing library fines & fees for some of its services beginning April 26th. In 2008 the library received $150,000 less state revenue than in 2007. According to the Ohio Library Council financial projections for tax revenue for 2009, public libraries can expect a drop in Public Library Funding (PLF) of 7-8% overall from 2008.
