Akron Public Library, Akron, Ohio

Public Library

In 1874, the newly-formed Akron Public Library Board met for the first time, with John R. Buchtel serving as the first President. Later that same year, the Akron Public Library opened its doors at the corner of Mill Street and South Howard Street. The building shown here was constructed in 1904.  Although the building no longer houses the public library, it can still be seen at 69 E Market St.
