Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, starting December 1 we will have 11 iPad Mini eReaders to check out (for Canton/Plymouth residents only). Besides a few preloaded classics and apps, each eReader has the Overdrive app which allows you to download your favorite library ebooks. An iPad Mini checks out for 3 weeks (and, yes, you can renew it if no one else is on hold), but you must return it to a staffed desk, and it's $5 per day overdue (so remember to return it on time).

The Hindu Festival of Lights is celebrated on November 3 in 2013. We are celebrating this annual, joyful holiday on Wednesday, November 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Canton Public Library. Please join us for food, dancing and song. The Festival of Lights, also known at Deepavali, is held in honor of Rama-Chandra, the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu and is a triumph of light over dark, good over evil. Come hear, taste, smell and watch this happy celebration with your neighbors as the Indian community is showcased.
