It's here---National Library Week! Every year, there is a special week in April to celebrate our favorite place in the whole, wide world--Libraries. This year it is April 9 to 15 and it is a wonderful week that has been celebrated since the mid-fifties. For more information on how this week of awesome came about, check out the information provided by the American Library Association (ALA) http://www.ala.org/news/mediapresscenter/factsheets/nationallibraryweek. Be sure to stop in and visit the Canton Public Library and thank a Library worker, check out a book, or enjoy one of the many free programs we have available. :) In fact, here are some great new books that can't wait to come home with you!

"A young astronaut is trying to find life on Mars, but he's made a very big oversight"--.
"A child wishes for a unicorn without knowing how unruly they are as pets"--.
