The Stark County Hunger Task Force is working to make sure kids who rely on free or reduced-cost lunches during the school year don't fall through the cracks in the summer. The task force is handing out bags each Thursday that include two breakfast and two lunch meals, snacks and drinks.

Assistant Director Stephanie Sweany  says nearly all kids at four Canton elementary schools receive free or reduced lunch.

The head of the Stark County District Library, who has overseen some of the biggest changes among library systems in Ohio, has been named the new chief operating officer of the Cleveland Public Library. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze talked with Tena Wilson about why libraries must move beyond books.

In Canton and much of the rest of Stark County, you can go to the library and take out more than just reading material.

Whether it be a portable Wi-Fi connection, a meter that shows power use in home appliances, or an air-quality analyzer, the array of gizmos you can now borrow has to do with access to knowledge.
