World War II Akron by Tim Carroll tells the stories of the men from Summit County who served in World War II, including many of the soldiers killed in the war. Blimps built by Goodyear hunted German and Japanese subs in the war, and the book is filled with great photos of Goodyear Navy blimps in action. Other topics to be covered will be the Dogs for Defense program, Congressional Medal of Honor winners, the Boy Scout draft, the Fathers’ draft and a thorough history of Summit County during World War II.

About the library

The Nordonia Hills Branch Library is your community information center, providing individualized reference service and access to information for citizens while serving the four Nordonia Hills communities: Macedonia, Northfield Center, Northfield Village, and Sagamore Hills.


The library is a place to find computers and computer classes, WiFi, copying, scanning and faxing, and space for local community groups to meet throughout the year. In addition, library staff provides educational support and outreach to the Nordonia Hills schools, local early childhood and homeschool organizations, senior communities, governmental units, and other neighborhood service and social organizations. We offer a solid collection of books, movies, and music ready for you to borrow. We also present regular and unique programs for all ages, often with a local focus or theme. Author visits, crafters, performers and gamers, teen meet-ups, Story Times, interactive nature and art events, a writers’ guild, wellness programs, and engaging discussion groups (including a Socrates Cafe), are all available at the Nordonia Hills Branch Library.


All of this makes the Nordonia Hills Branch Library your one-stop spot for the community's educational, informational, and entertainment needs and interests.
