Though the library's history goes back to the 19th Century, the current main branch was erected in 1969. Akron-Summit County Public Library underwent a major renovation in 2004 to keep up with the pace of modern times. It also hosts movie screenings, poetry slams, craft workshops and story times. Besides a children's library, the facility covers various zones such as Culture & AV, Special Collections, Business & Government, Magazines & Newspapers, and Science & Technology. The three-level library also features a 425-seat theater, meeting spaces, a used book-store, an outdoor amphitheater, Microbusiness Center, U.S. Passport and Notary services, study rooms, computer labs, a recording studio and cafe.
