Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Help the Family and Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) while paying off your library late fees through this year's Food for Fines event. With the continued economic challenges in Summit County, many people are turning to our local food bank for help feeding their families and providing necessities. To assist with this demand, the Summit County Library will collect food and other items in place of monetary fines for overdue library materials through April 30.
