Features

The Perry Sippo branch is located in the Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake Park. The library's collection includes the latest bestsellers, movies, music, and magazines for all ages. It has a 400 gallon fresh water aquarium, a reading terrace overlooking Sippo Lake, a fireplace, and a notary available. 

The Exploration Gateway is a center of nature, culture, and life-long learning established in June 2007 as a partnership between the Stark County Park District and Stark Library.  Staff members work together demonstrating a commitment to education, the environment, community outreach, and stewardship of financial resources.

History

The Perry Local Board of Education donated land near the Perry Schools campus on 13th Street for the Perry Heights Branch of the library in 1963, and the library opened to the public in 1964. The branch occupied this space through several renovations and enlargements until it was destroyed in a fire in 2002. On May 14, 2007 the branch opened in its new location, sharing quarters with the Stark County Park District Education Center on Sippo Lake.

Hours

Perry Sippo Branch is now open with limited hours. Things will look and feel a bit different as we re-open.  We are limiting the number of people permitted in the branch, so you may need to wait to enter the building.

We ask that you keep our community safe by wearing a mask. Masks are required for entry into the building. Children five and under are not required to wear a mask.
