Friends of the Stark County District Library

Dedicated to promoting and supporting the Stark County District Library.



Our Mission:

To promote increased community awareness and use of the library.
To enhance services and projects.
To develop and maintain a volunteer program.


The Friends of the Stark County District Library is a dedicated organization whose mission is to assist and promote the library through volunteer efforts. FOL is making a difference in our community by:

  • Volunteering in various library departments.
  • Raising money through monthly Used Book sales and on-going book sales at our Gift Shop.
  • Providing equipment and "extras."
  • Supporting projects such as Books for Babies, Academic Challenge, and Poetry Month events.


Our future depends on current members and new memberships. The Friends of the Library welcomes new members who are interested in making a contribution to our mission and helping our Library meet the needs of our community.

To celebrate National Library Week (April 12-18th), seven Stark County writers will tell us what libraries have meant to them. These include fiction writers (Tom Barlow and Vance Voyles), a journalist (Charita Goshay), an historian (Richard McElroy), and poets (John Estes, Bonnie Jacobson, and Robert Miltner).

One of these tributes will be published on the library's website each day, along with a short passage of the author's writing that relates to books and reading. 


Be sure to check the library website daily to see these tributes to our Stark County writers!
