Is Your Branch Library Closed? We’re Always Open Online!

We know that - sometimes - you work on that paper late at night. Or you plan that vacation after the kids have gone to bed. Or you start thinking about retirement in the early morning, as you’re sitting at the office. And so, we want to be available to you!

Stark Library has over 500,000 ebooks, shows, and more available 24/7 from our online library and content apps. You can enjoy all the ease of the cloud, without ever paying a dime or enduring another commercial.

All you need is a library card to get started!
