We are welcoming back Sylvan Learning Center on Saturday, May 21, 9:30 AM-1:00 PM to administer a full length SAT practice test. This test  is open to teens aged 14-17.  Participants are to bring their own calculator and pencils. They must attend the entire session. Registration is required and although participants do not need to be Canton residents, they do need to have a valid library card entered in the CPL system to register. Registration begins April 26.

Please Note: Sylvan administers one form of the SAT diagnostic test. If you attend more than one of these sessions, you will be repeating the same test each time.  As a result, any improvements in SAT score from one Sylvan session to another may not accurately reflect how one might do on the actual SAT test.

Raja Yoga Meditation helps you reach a deeper understanding of yourself, your intrinsic positive qualities and your innate value.

Last week we lost one of the greatest American musicians of the Twentieth Century. But the music of Prince lives on. If you cannot find your favorite album in our audio collection, login to Hoopla Digital through our e-media page.

Celebrate his catalog and his love of life with us!

Today marks the 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. The bard has influenced literature and culture for centuries - celebrate with one of these Shakespearean works!

William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. 

Baz Luhrmann's rendition of the classic story of star-crossed lovers, set in a futuristic urban Verona Beach.

Macbeth by Gareth Hinds

Shakespeare's classic story of dark ambitions, madness, and murder springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel by Gareth Hinds. Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, Gareth Hinds's captivating, richly illustrated interpretation takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition.

This week the music world lost a legendary composer and performer. During his four-decade music career Prince (or The Artist-Formerly-And-Then-Once-More-Known-As-Prince) recorded 39 studio albums on his own and with a variety of supporting musical groups, including the Revolution, the New Power Generation and 3rdeyegirl. With his stereotype-smashing style and incredible musical aptitude, Prince topped musical charts dozens of times with songs such as "When Doves Cry,"  "1999," "Musicology," "I Would Die 4 U" and many more. He also starred in four films, including Purple Rain

You can use your Canton Public Library card to review Prince's prolific career with always-available streaming music.
