You may have noticed that there's been lots of talk in the library lately about CPL's 30th anniversary. There are only a very few people who've been a part of Canton Public Library as long as I have, so I thought I'd chime in with my own experiences here at CPL. You can find my story on the library's Flickr account. Yup! I'm a pretty tech savvy bear. In some of the pictures I look kind of funny because they were taken a long time ago. You'd better not laugh!
Eco books : inventive projects from the recycling bin by Terry Taylor
Handmade books sound neat, but how easy is it to actually make one? Turns out, pretty easy! You can take materials you have around the house and make them into books in a variety of styles. This book shows how to make forty different types of books ranging from easy (complete in an afternoon or less) to more advanced styles that might take a little longer. You can also reuse a ton of different materials for the covers, including egg cartons, cardboard, fabric, an old mouse pad, cereal boxes, and lots of others.
Program Date: Monday, October 18 5:00-5:30PM

We've shown CPL's history with Summer Reading… but what about recent history? Our 2010 program was huge and successful, despite road construction and further budget constraints. The above video shows just some of the activities and programs hosted at the library. We were busy this Summer!
