Do you speak or want to learn a non-English language?

Do you speak a language other than English? Are you studying a language in school? Do you want to learn another language for your own enrichment? If you answered YES to any of those questions, you need to check out the children's international language collection.

Last year we added non-English juvenile feature films and learning DVDs and all languages available in the Muzzy language learning series, and this year we've eliminated the old book/cassette language kits and have updated with book/CD kits.

Springtime and Monet

Welcome to Spring, everyone!

Thorndyke Thoughts

Hi Kids!  Thorndyke here!  Did you know that today—March 19th –is Absolutely Incredible Kid Day?   And since all the kids who come to the Canton Public Library are absolutely incredible, it’s a very important day to celebrate.   My favorite way?  With a song!  Maybe "Skinnamarink" by Sharon, Lois, and Bram. Another great way is with ice cream!  May I suggest the flavor Bear Claw?  It’s my favorite!   Have a great week, kids! 

Bear Hugs!
