Outreach Services Team

Our mission is to extend library services beyond the library building, ensuring everyone in the Stow-Munroe Falls community has access to our resources.

We offer a variety of services for all ages!

Community Outreach Services

Adult Outreach Visits

We are dedicated to visiting senior and low-income apartment buildings, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes in Stow and Munroe Falls. The services we provide include hosting pop-up libraries inside the facility, bookmobile visits, and other special programs. We can also help residents use our digital services on their mobile devices. If you are a manager or activities director at a facility, we’d love to help you create an outreach program tailored for your residents! Please contact us at (330) 688-3294 ext. 1024 for more information.

Homebound Delivery

If you live in Stow or Munroe Falls and can’t visit the library due to age, disability, or prolonged illness, we can help. Through our Homebound Delivery, library materials are delivered to your doorstep. Please call us at (330) 688-3295 ext. 1024. We’re committed to making sure you have access to our collection, no matter what your circumstances are.

Services may be discontinued or modified for safety reasons, or if the purpose of the service is not being met.

Are you interested in volunteering for the library by delivering our materials to homebound patrons? Please call (330) 688-3295 ext. 1024 for more information. All volunteers must pass a background check.

Services for Schools and Teachers

We provide services for kindergarten through grade 5 at schools in Stow and Munroe Falls including book talks, presentations about our Summer Reading initiative, and other programs. These services are available by request.

Our Teen Librarian serves grade 6 through 12 at Stow-Munroe Falls schools. Teen services include book talks, presentations about our Summer Reading initiative, and other programs. The Teen Librarian also leads book clubs at Kimpton Middle School and Stow-Munroe Falls High School.

Teachers can request materials for their classrooms. We offer teacher loans on a one-time or recurring basis. These materials can be picked up or delivered to Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools through the school delivery system.

Please call us at (330) 688-3295 ext. 1003 for more information on school and teacher services.

Services for Preschools and Daycares

We proudly offer monthly story times to any preschool or daycare in Stow and Munroe Falls. Teachers can request a selection of our materials (called a deposit collection) for use in their classrooms. Additionally, daycares and preschools may schedule one Family Night per calendar year, where the students and their families attend a special evening story time at the library. Let us help you create a love for reading in your classroom! Contact us at (330) 688-3295 ext. 1003 for more information.


With the addition of our new bookmobile, we are excited to bring the library to you! Look for us around Stow and Munroe Falls at festivals, parks, farmers’ markets, and other community events.

  • Laundry Time (3760 Fishcreek Road in Stow)
