Library service to the Kenmore area began with a lending library started by a local citizen. The Akron Public Library took over the service in 1930. The current building opened on January 4, 1957. It had a larger, and more expensive collection than any branch library previously opened. The books alone cost $9,949.64.

Current library statistics show that Kenmore Branch circulated 160,601 items in 2004 and has a current collection of 52,170 items.

We are open 6 days a week to meet your needs for education, information and recreation.

Our friendly, skilled staff includes a branch and adult services librarian, two librarians serving children from babies through high school age, public service assistants, and student assistants.
