Library service to the Northfield and Macedonia area began in 1934 with a community library housed in a local school.

The Akron Public Library began bookmobile service to the Nordonia Hills area in 1946.

In August of 1954, the Akron Public Library signed an agreement with the Northfield Community Library, then housed in the Palmer House, to provide library service to the area.

The original Northfield Branch Library opened at its present location in 1964. At that time the 5,500 square foot building cost $183,187.64 for site, building and furnishings.

 In September, 1990, the name was changed to Nordonia Hills Branch to reflect the four areas served by the library – Northfield Center, Northfield Village, Sagamore Hills and Macedonia. 

The current 12,000 square foot library building was opened in the summer of 1999. Current library statistics show that Nordonia Hills Branch circulated 417,099 items in 2013, houses a collection of 72,070 items,and has 21,489 registered borrowers.

      You may access our digital magazine collection via our library website –
      It will be found under the “e-books and digital media” link on the left side of the web page.
      The system uses the Zinio magazine app.

      Thanks for your question.

    We have quite a few books we’d like to donate for your next book sale. Do you accept them anytime?

      Yes – at this time, we accept book donations most weeks of the year, except for the week of our book sales.
      The Nordonia Hills Friends of the Library do not accept encyclopedias, textbooks, magazines, or Reader’s Digest Condensed Books.

      Thanks for thinking of us!

      We will begin accepting donations after January 1, 2016. We generally do not have the space to store a large amount of donations onsite, and our fall book sale was just recently held.
      We do provide a donation receipt for patrons.
