Canton Public Library Connects Your Community.
For CPL, 2011 was all about people. A great library is a reflection of a great community, and it all boils down to people: hardworking staff, dedicated volunteers, loyal supporters, and a community that values and uses their library. Use of the library in 2011 was heavy, with a whopping 565,046 people coming through our doors. We remain the busiest single-location public library in the state of Michigan, with employees who demonstrate time and time again their commitment to serving our residents with excellence.
These 565,046 visitors checked out materials, gathered with colleagues, made new friends, used our computers, and were assisted by our highly-trained, expert staff. Our 2011 Annual Report provides highlights of our fantastic year with an emphasis on how people used the library, and how our staff made that possible through creative management of our resources and responding to the feedback we got from you, the users. We hope you enjoy this report on your library and we look forward to continuing to meet the needs of our community.
