Silhouette Scavenger Hunt
Unfortunately, we do not offer public document shredding services at the library. The City of Wadsworth used to put on a free community shredding event, but I was unable to find any upcoming dates for this. From what I can tell, they may no longer offer this, but you could call City Hall and ask at 330-335-1521.
Otherwise, you might check with your bank or credit union. Many of them are now providing shredding services for free to their account holders.
I will look into this further and get back to you if I find anything.

Any resident of the State of Ohio over the age of 18, can obtain a library card at our Circulation Desk with an ID with a current address. Anyone under the age of 18 can obtain a card as long as their parent/guardian has a card in good standing and is present to sign for the minor’s card. For more information about library cards, please click here.
Initially, patrons may borrow 15 items for the first 30 days and then patrons may borrow up to 50 items, in any combination of formats (books and CD's, for example), with the exception of video games. Video game borrowing is limited to 2 items at any given time. We advise you, however, that late fees are 50 cents a day for DVDs and video games, and 10 cents for all other items, please call the Library or go online to renew your items to avoid unnecessary fines.
You can renew your library books in person, over the phone with your library card, or by logging into the My Account page.
Please come in or call the Library during operational hours with your library card number. The staff will confirm the current address, phone, and email/ text information. Library cards expire every year in order to keep account information up-to-date.
Fines can be paid with cash, check, or credit card at the Circulation Desk or the Drive-Up Window. You can also use your debit/credit card online by logging into the My Account page.
We will let you know as soon as the item comes back to the library (via e-mail, text, or phone). If you place a hold on something that is “available” in the catalog, it won’t be ready to be picked up until the next day or later. If you’d like an item that’s “available” sooner, we recommend calling our Reference Department at 330.335.1294 or Children’s Department at 330.335.1295.
You can register for an event by calling the library, doing so in person, or registering online using our Event Calendar.
Yes, you may reserve a meeting room as long as you have a valid library card, it is an approved use, and one is available. For more information on our meeting room policies, please click here.
The library has a photocopier that makes black and white copies for 10 cents per page. Patrons are also allotted 50 free pages per day when they print from one of our computers. Any printing beyond the 50 pages is at a cost of 10 cents per page. Additionally, we recently extended 50 free pages of computer printing to mobile devices such as laptops and smartphones. With our mobile printing app, you can even securely send a print job from home and collect it at the Library.
We do not have a public fax machine. We do have a scanning service, and patrons are welcome to utilize a scan to fax service on one of our public computers.
You are welcome to donate your books to the library. Some we add to our collection, and the rest we give to the Friends of the Library for their book sales. Please let our staff members know if you’d like a receipt for your donation for your taxes.
