The Canton Public Library knows that a dead phone battery can be a real inconvenience. Thanks to a generous donation from the Canton Sprint Store, a small collection of charger cords will be available at the Main Information Desk for in-house use.
To borrow a micro-USB cord, lightning cable or 30-pin cable, present your photo ID or library card to a librarian at the Information Desk. These cables can be used with USB ports throughout the library and are compatible with most modern smart phones and tablets, including Android and Apple products.
The Canton Public Library is not responsible for damage to any patron device.

It was just announced yesterday that Harper Lee will be releasing a sequel this summer to her Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird, published over 50 years ago. We've already received requests for the book, titled Go Set a Watchman, so hop on the hold list now before you forget. In the meantime, we've compiled a list of books that reference and draw inspiration from the classic.
Mockingbird: (mok'ing-bûrd) by Kathryn Erskine
In this National Book Award winning title, ten-year-old
Caitlin, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, references To Kill a Mockingbird as she struggles to come to grips with her
grief after her brother is killed in a school shooting.
