Last year we recycled more than 71,000 pounds of paper, earning $900 for the library. You can use our recycling bin for just about any kind of paper - magazines, paper bags, catalogs, phone books, paperback and hardbound books, newspapers, junk mail, and office and school paper. The bin is in the parking lot near Broad Boulevard.
From April through December last year we saved almost $22,900 by using 300,000 fewer kilowatt hours of electricity. That's 36% less power than we used during the same months in 2009.
Now you can download audiobooks on any Internet computer in the library. All you need is a library card and a supported portable device (except for an iPhone). Just go to the Ohio eBook Project or SEO ebook catalog, check out an audiobook or music, and when you click "download" on the next screen the Overdrive Download Station software will lead you through the rest.
Get an entire audiobook on a device that's about the size of a deck of cards. Add your own earbuds and a battery (or buy some here). Listen and enjoy; it's that easy. See our Playaways page under "books & more" for more information.
This year is Cuyahoga Falls' 200th birthday (and the library's 100th), and you can buy bicentennial t-shirts, hats and candles at the library for $10 each. The red, white, & blue striped candles created by Sisters Scented Candles of Cuyahoga Falls have a different scent for each color (rain, vanilla and cinnamon). T-shirt sizes are youth M and L, and adult S, M, L, & XL. The ball caps have an adjustable Velcro strap. You can pay by cash, check or money order made payable to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio Bicentennial.

If you have a Kindle Fire, you might be able to use it with downloadable audiobooks and another format of eBooks. This blog post has instructions, though it does say this might not work on all devices.
If you're at your checkout limit in the Ohio eBook Project, or if the waiting list is too long for something you want, try the SEO Consortium's ebooks. This is a separate collection that you can access with your Falls Library card, with a separate checkout limit and separate waiting lists.
