Read and Share

Are you looking for a fun way to earn some Super Bookworm badges for reading this summer? Come to our Read and Share program. Bring your blankets and lounge chairs as we will meet in the Community Room and then chill in the courtyard while we read a story or two together.  Then we will take some time to read on our own and then gather to share what we are reading at the end. You can bring your own book or read one of ours. All ages welcome! If there is inclement weather this program will be held in the Community Room.

Did you know that the Library and the areas surrounding it are always teeming with wild Pokémon, PokéStops, even 4 Pokémon GO gyms? Meet up with other Canton area Trainers for our Pokémon Group Hunt and help us scour the Library and Heritage Park (weather permitting) for new items and wild Pokémon!

No registration required! We'll start in the Community Room, and head out from there, so be on time (or come find us in the Library or park). This program is open to all ages. Can't make it this week? Keep an eye out for weekly Group Hunts! 

In the event of inclement or uncomfortably hot weather our Group Hunt will remain inside the library. We may even drop some lures :)  

*Participants must bring their own Apple or Android device with Pokémon GO installed and account created. To battle in the Gym, Trainers must be Level 5 or higher.

Dance Your Fanny Off

Families with young children can put on their dancing shoes. We're celebrating National Dance Day a day early with stories and a craft, followed by an open dance party. Stories will start at 3:00 and everyone will have a chance to make their own dance ribbon before we start our freestyle dance party at 3:30. Grownups should come ready to move and groove with the little ones and have a great time.
