The award was presented to the library by the <a href="http://www.canton-mi.org/committees/cce.aspx">Canton Committee for Community Excellence</a>. The colorful <strong>READ</strong> berm, on the east side of the library facing Canton Center Road, was recognized by the Committee as promoting community pride. The library strives to be a pleasant, welcoming environment for the many patrons who visit. (A special thanks to <a href="http://www.reliablelandscaping.com/index.php?id=5">Reliable Landscaping of Canton</a> which does a wonderful job of taking care of the library grounds, especially the ladies who take care of the <strong>READ</strong> flowers.) http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/home-and-garden/2009-design-excellence-award#comments Home and Garden Adults Awards gardening landscaping Mon, 12 Oct 2009 20:14:55 +0000 laffeyj 14049 at http://www.cantonpl.org CPL Housekeeping Staff Going Green http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/green/environment/cpl-housekeeping-staff-going-green As part of our ongoing effort to make Canton Library an environmentally friendly building, our Housekeeping staff will be trained and certified in "green" cleaning procedures. It doesn't cost more to use safe effective cleaning products and procedures. In fact, in most cases, it costs less. The benefits are obvious. You get a clean , healthy building without using the products which are harmful to our environment. Using "green"  cleaning products is also much healthier for our Housekeeping staff. There is a wealth of information about "green buildings" available from the <a href="http://www.usgbc.org/">U.S. Green Building Council website</a>.  We are also changing over our hand soap to a foaming cleanser and will be installing roll towel dispensers in our restrooms. There is a great deal of waste with our current "C Fold" towel dispensers. http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/green/environment/cpl-housekeeping-staff-going-green#comments Green/Environment Health News Kids Tweens Teens Adults Parents Seniors green cleaning Thu, 28 May 2009 20:12:22 +0000 laffeyj 12394 at http://www.cantonpl.org
