With educational partners young and old, the Branch welcomes children from the Kleptz YMCA for summer storytimes, offers Take It & Read sites for children, brings literacy programs to youth at area daycares and through the Northmont Schools, and welcomes Sinclair Community College to help register students for classes.
The Northmont The Northmont Branch Library needs more programming room than available in the current leased space at the Englewood Government Center, so plans call for a new larger facility. Site options to serve patrons from Englewood, Clayton, and the surrounding area continue to be explored.
