I remember spending countless summer breaks riding my bike down North Hawkins Street to Alton Drive where the back entrance to Ayers Branch Library was located. I remember the old house and the display rack where I'd spend hours upon hours deciding how many Boxcar Children and Baby Sitter's Club books I could read in the two-week checkout period.
And I remember being just a tiny bit sad when the library moved to its new location on 1720 Shatto Avenue and changed its name to Northwest Akron Branch Library. It wasn't as cozy as the house I had grown to call my second home, but it was impressive with its large quantity of books that my growing mind could conquered.
