Stark Library unveils Perry Sippo Branch renovations

Perry TWP. – The Perry Shippo branch in the Stark County Library District will reopen after five months of refurbishment.

The library is located at 5710 12th St. NW and celebrates its grand opening on Saturday at 10am.

The lakeside location has many new features such as a self-check station, touch screen catalog, enclosed study, new shelves and furniture.

The refurbishment is part of the Library District’s multi-year plan, “Re | imagine,” to refurbish the library district’s branches, improve technology, and provide more space for work and other uses. The refurbishment plan was funded through a two-mill, eight-year levy that voters handed over to the library district in 2019.

The North Branch, East Canton and Madge Youtz branches have already been refurbished.

The Perry Shippo branch was built in 2007. We share space with Stark Parks.

“It’s a popular destination,” said Mary Ellen Ikaza, Managing Director of the Stark County Library District.

Ikaza said he believes the change will continue to increase the popularity of the branch.
