It's Screen-Free Week

This week, May 5th-11th is Screen-Free Week. Presented by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, Screen-Free Week encourages families to spend a week without entertainment screen media--i.e. no TV watching, video game playing or internet surfing for entertainment's sake.  Instead families spend the week doing things together, being creative and getting active.  Want to participate?  There are ideas on the official Screen-Free Week website, or Canton Public Library has lots of resources to help you think of fun things to do.

Family Book Talk Night

Summer is a great time to have fun together as a family, and you can join us with your family by reading a book by (or about) Roald Dahl, then come to our Family Book Talk Night. Families with a child in elementary school can join us, and we'll have a snack and chat about the books we've read. 

Please register at least one member of your family and let us know how many people you will be bringing in the Note.

*You can also use this experience to earn badges in our CYS program: claim a Bookworm Badge when you read your Roald Dahl book, claim an eLectrified Badge if you also watch a Roald Dahl-related movie, and claim a related On-the-Scene Badge after you attend the program.

Meet a Horse

This program will be held outside. Please dress for the weather.

Canton Public Library is pleased to welcome Jennifer Blades, the Coach of the University of Michigan's Equestrian team and owner of Willowbrooke Farm in Plymouth on Wednesday June 18th from 10:00 - 11:00 am. Jenny will bring a very special guest, one of her favorite school horses, Darien. She'll describe the basics of English riding skills and horse maintenance. Darien is a gentle, sweet horse and he loves kids! This is an outdoor event.
