Come one, come all! To celebrate March is Reading Month, we are hosting an open mic night for readers of all ages. We want you to bring in your favorite family-friendly short passage, poetry or picture book, step up to the mic and share with other literature lovers in the library. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 4 from 7:00-8:00 PM.
March is Reading Month celebrations will continue as we pick up a book and read to you. We'll celebrate our love of reading by sharing some of our favorite picture books for older children as well as a few chapter book excerpts. All ages are encouraged to stop by for a listen.

The Canton Book Project is your chance to share your love of reading by giving out books to people in this community who, for whatever reason, don't read for pleasure or own books. Applications are being accepted from members of the community interested in being book givers. Book givers will have the opportunity to share the love of reading by distributing a book of their choice to other members of the community. Readers of all ages are encouraged to apply and books can be of any reading level.
