Your library would like to give back to you this summer! In honor of the Summer Reading theme, Be Creative @ Your Library, the Canton Public Library staff decided to make works of art for you to win. We've got quilters, knitters, woodworkers, photographers and many other creative people here. For a view of our craftsy items, check out our Flickr page.
Gustafer Yellowgold has arrived at the Canton Public Library. Who is Gustafer? He's a creature that moved to Minnesota from the Sun. He has a pet Eel and a Pterodactyl best friend. And in his free time he jumps on cakes and punches cheese. The DVDs in this collection include stunning artwork and original songs and are for ages 3 and up. Of course, if you can't wait to check out the DVDs, the creator of Gustafer Yellowgold will be at the Barnes and Noble in Rochester Hills next Friday, June 12th. Gustafer's website also includes short songs and fun games to play.
