History

The Perry Local Board of Education donated land near the Perry Schools campus on 13th Street for the Perry Heights Branch of the library in 1963, and the library opened to the public in 1964. The branch occupied this space through several renovations and enlargements until it was destroyed in a fire in 2002. On May 14, 2007 the branch opened in its new location, sharing quarters with the Stark County Park District Education Center on Sippo Lake.
