The Summit County Library announces the launch of its new website. For the past year, the library staff worked to revise and update the library website to meet patron’s expectations.

“We knew it was time to update the site and are grateful for the partnership the library continues to have with Imagine That, who designed and executed our first website more than five years ago and helped us to create the new one,” said Joyce Dierauer, executive director of the Summit County Library, in a statement.

Mobile responsiveness, color choices and ease of finding information were all evaluated and updated based upon Google Analytics and information shared between the Library Foundation, Friends of the Library and the Summit County Library boards.

“We are fortunate to have many stakeholders interested in the library’s website and our team worked hard to listen, change and maintain functionality as well as introduce a new user experience,” Dierauer said.

The site, which launched on Friday, April 15, coincided with National Library Week. The 2016 National Library Week theme was “Libraries Transform.”

“The launch of the website has been a transformation of how our North Branch, Main Library and South Branch want to present information to our residents, visitors, students and parents as well as a new way to provide access to meeting room reservations, technology resources and our weekly programs and events,” said Dierauer.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries — school, public, academic and special — participate.
