In 2015 HBM worked with the Stark County District Library to develop a Visioning Assessment of their facilities exploring opportunities to incorporate new service models throughout the system in response to changes in library trends and community needs. The 7-branch reimagining process began in 2020 with anticipated completion in 2023. These phased renovation projects apply successful and tested design and functional solutions while still maintaining neighborhood individuality in the arrangement of spaces and programmatic elements.

The East Canton Branch’s renovation aims to transform the space into a thriving community epicenter. Boasting a curated selection of popular literature and dedicated zones for kids and teens, complete with interactive play areas and versatile teen spaces, the refurbished library will promote literacy and cater to diverse preferences. By forging stronger bonds with local schools, the East Canton Branch aspires to establish itself as a welcoming ‘community living room’ where patrons feel at home.
