WATCH FOR DETAILS
DIG INTO READING! Summer Reading Program starts Thursday, June 6, 2013. Studies show that participating in a summer reading program helps children alleviate the "brain drain" of summer. There will be prizes, programs and more. Look for detailed information coming soon.

Thanks to the generosity of The Friends of the Cuyahoga Falls Library, the Children's Room has seven new touch screen game computers, just in time for the start of Summer Reading Program on June 5! Five of them are AWE Early Literacy Stations with games that are appropriate for children ages 3 - 8. And we have two additional new AWE AfterSchool Edge computers with games for children ages 8 - 12. So when the heat index is over 100 this summer and you need a place to stay cool, the Children's Room is the perfect place to read, play and relax!
