SAT preparation courses can be costly, but all Gale Courses are free with your Canton Public Library card. Beginning in April 2017, the Michigan Department of Education will offer the SAT to juniors. Prepare for this shift with Gale's SAT Preparation course. This course will address specific question types, discuss time management and anxiety reducing techniques, and explain scoring.

This course is a helpful way to familiarize yourself with the 2016 redesigned test format, understand included content, and better prepare for the exam-taking experience. The next set of classes will begin on Wednesday, April 12. If April does not work for you, there is a new session beginning each month. Learn on your own schedule, and receive a certificate of completion when you've finished.

Attention all storytime fans! While our regular storytime sessions are not available in March, our storytime kits are! Even better, you can have a storytime at home. Storytime kits have a picture book, songs on cd, a puppet or stuffed animal, and fingerplays and rhymes that all center around the story. You can design your own storytime just the way you want with friends and family at home. Have fun, and tell us all about it when our library storytimes return in April.
