Family Game Night

We are celebrating Everyone's Reading with a Family Game Night. The Secrets of Happy Families by Bruce Feiler encourages families to "go out and play." Spending time together, working as a team and having fun creating memories are important elements to a happy family. Let's start at the library by sharing some competition, gamesmanship and cheerleading with family board game night. Bring your own board games or share some of ours. We will even throw in a little snack on October 17 at 7:00 PM.

Listen @ the Library

The Chamber Music Society of Detroit presents the first in a series of music presentations at the Canton Public Library. The goal of the Society is to "strengthen families through musical outreach in the heart of the community." We will be treated to delightful chamber music performed by very talented musicians. The performance will include interactive demonstrations and lecture which will engage and entertain the audience of all ages. This presentation will be given by Stephen Wogaman, a pianist with the group. Stephen has been a part of the Allentown Symphony Orchestra and Canton (Ohio) Symphony Orchestra and has his doctorate in music from Indiana University School of Music.

Please bring the entire family for an amazing afternoon of memorable music on Saturday, September 21 at 3:00 PM in our Community Room.
