QuickBooks is designed for the small to midsized business owner who needs a fully functional accounting system that is also easy to use.  When you enroll in this course, you will learn how this well-designed accounting software can make it a snap to set up a chart of accounts, reconcile your checking account, create and print invoices, receipts, and statements, track your payables, inventory, and receivables, create estimates, and generate reports.

All Gale Courses are free with your Canton Public Library card, and the next set of classes will begin on Wednesday, December 12. Learn on your own schedule, and receive a certificate of completion when you've finished. Our goal is to provide lifelong educational opportunities for you to gain new skills or improve existing ones. New sessions are offered every month. Take advantage of these instructor-led courses on our databases page!

Eye looking through a keyhole

Our library is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our users. Protecting your privacy and confidentiality can help protect you against identity theft. Moreover, privacy is essential to your ability to explore new ideas - even controversial ones - without fear of being judged, punished, ostracized, or put under surveillance.  

Protecting your privacy is a team effort, and we can't do it alone; you also have an important role in keeping your information safe. In this third post of our series on privacy, we'll delve into a slightly more advanced topic: browsers and browser extensions.

Your browser is the program that you use to browse the internet. Examples of browsers include Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Many browsers have extensions (or add-on programs) available that can increase your security, and other browsers have security measures built in to protect you without requiring additional extensions. These options require installation on your own computer, and thus cannot be used on library-provided computers.

A Christmas carol [kit] by 1812-1870 Charles Dickens

First published on December 19th, 1843, A Christmas Carol was an instant classic upon its publication as Londoners thronged to hear Dickens read it in person and bought out the first printing in days. Its reception was so ecstatic it was credited with helping to re-interest the Victorians in Christmas traditions. The classic tale tells the story of hard hearted money lender Scrooge, who is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve, encouraging him to change his ways and embrace Christmas before it is too late. CPL's Lunch and a Book Group gave this title 4 stars out of 5. This kit contains 10 copies of the title.

We have three new job postings with our Information Services Department. For complete details please visit our jobs/volunteer page.
