Yes, the Canton Public Library has full power. Come use the Internet, play with the kids, or just charge your phone on one of our many outlets (we even have some chargers you can use). 

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.
