Canton Public Library wants you to Electrify Your Winter and Spark Your Year! We've created a whole packet of "Spark Sheets" to help you set goals and achieve great things. We will be rolling these out over the winter with curated expiriences to encourage connectivity and growth for all ages. Our kids and family components are called Take Time Together. We will link to the relevant Spark Sheets as well as suggest activities you can do at home to grow in ways you never thought of. Catered to fit your busy lives, suggestions vary for families who have 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours to spend with each other. The choice is yours!


The Wellness Widget Spark Sheet helps us be kind to ourselves. Take a moment to focus on the good things in life and not the things that stress you out. Do something fun and relax! 

5 minutes:

Take 5 minutes with a friend for family member to each share three things you like or admire about each other. Then, bask in the feel good glow. We don't compliment each other nearly enough. 

30 Minutes:

Take 30 minutes to cut out and fold our Wellness Widget (see links below). Share it with a friend or family member. Look here for instructions for how to use it. You can even illustrate it! 

2 hours:

Take 2 hours to play a board game or go outside and play a winter sport (snow football, anyone?). Get some exercise for your mind or body. Invite friends and family. It'll be the perfect distraction, just what you need to forget your blues and start feeling good.
