Do you have books you've finished reading that you don't know what to do with? Would you like a chance to trade them in for something "new" to read?

Spring Story Time

The Massillon Public Library’s next four-week session of Story Times will begin on April 3.

A Letter from the Director


Sometimes this column can be bright and cheery, but the news this month and its impact on the library is very unhappy indeed.

Meditation Discussion Group

The Massillon Public Library hosts Meditation on the first and third Tuesday of each month led by guest presenter Gwen Miller. As a prelude to each session, a beginners’ introduction will be provided at 6:30 p.m. At 6:45, the group will meditate together and then move into that night's topic. On Tuesday, April 4, participants are invited to discuss the topic: Meditation for Everyday Living. On Tuesday, April 18, the discussion will focus on Attaining Lasting Happiness.
