Mahoning County’s newest public library is now open for business.

A ribbon cutting was held Tuesday afternoon for the Tri-Lakes Library in North Jackson.

The library is named after the three nearby bodies of water: Berlin Lake, Meander Reservoir and Lake Milton. It merges the North Jackson and Craig Beach branches into one.

Library Director Heidi Daniel said this library is a lot different than the ones it replaces.

“Taking into consideration that you have to serve multiple age groups,” said Daniel. “You have to give people technology access and wi-fi access and you have to give people the tools they need to learn and grow along with their community.”

The Tri-Lakes branch has a community meeting room, a children’s area that features desks shaped as boats and outdoor benches for patrons to enjoy nature while reading a book.
