Thanks to generous support from the Huntington–Akron Foundation, the Akron Art Library expanded from the original Akron-Summit County Main Library to include the Odom Boulevard Branch, with 10 new original artworks available for library patrons to borrow.
Odom Boulevard Branch Library recently hosted an Akron Art Library Launch Party in partnership with the Akron Art Museum on Monday, December 9, 2019.
Local patrons were able to meet many of the contributing artists who attended the launch party. This included Alexandria Couch, Kwame Gomez, Chris Harvey, Hui-Chu Ying, and Maria Zannetta, plus many other University of Akron / Myers School of Art artists. Library patrons were able not only try their hand at art, but also treated to a printing press demonstration with newly created art they could take home.
