Register for our special, after-hours, teen only lock-in at the library December 14 from 6:00-9:00 PM. Or come to one of our planning sessions, and help decide what we'll do (you can even get volunteer hours for doing it!). Planning will be held in the Purple Room.

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, starting December 1 we will have 11 iPad Mini eReaders to check out (for Canton/Plymouth residents only). Besides a few preloaded classics and apps, each eReader has the Overdrive app which allows you to download your favorite library ebooks. An iPad Mini checks out for 3 weeks (and, yes, you can renew it if no one else is on hold), but you must return it to a staffed desk, and it's $5 per day overdue (so remember to return it on time).

Lou Reed, leader of avante-garde band The Velvet Underground before going solo in the early Seventies, died this week (October 27) at the age of 71. He had no wish for fame, but is probably one of the best known 'unknown' musicians of the past 30 years. A songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Reed had a distinctive voice. As a member of The Velvet Underground, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. (Photo Credit: Stephen Munday. Olympics Day 13 - Lou Reed Performs At The Medal Plaza.
