Celebrate 100 years of the Cuyahoga Falls Library

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 as part of the City's 200th Birthday Celebration, we have dedicated the day as Literature Arts and Culture Day!  The Cuyahoga Falls Library celebrates their 100th year in 2012.  In 1907 Margaretta Taylor bequeathed the funds necessary for the creation of a library, which was officially incorporated in 1911 as the William A. and Margaretta Taylor Memorial Association. In 1912 the library moved into the red brick building on Second Street. This building served the community until 1970 when the library moved into its current location on the corner of Third Street and Broad Boulevard. Cuyahoga Falls Library has grown into a collection of 200,000+ items and has a large collection of services available to the public.

Visit the Cuyahoag Falls Library during these upcoming events!
