Canton Seniors Book Discussion: March 23, 2017

Please join the Canton Seniors Book Discussion as we discuss:

The excellent Lombards by Jane Hamilton
Also available in: large print

Mary Frances "Frankie" Lombard is fiercely in love with her family's sprawling apple orchard and the tangled web of family members who inhabit it. Content to spend her days planning capers with her brother William, competing with her brainy cousin Amanda, and expertly tending the orchard with her father, Frankie desires nothing more than for the rhythm of life to continue undisturbed. But she cannot help being haunted by the historical fact that some family members end up staying on the farm and others must leave. Change is inevitable, and threats of urbanization, disinheritance, and college applications shake the foundation of Frankie's roots. As Frankie is forced to shed her childhood fantasies and face the possibility of losing the idyllic future she had envisioned for her family, she must decide whether loving something means clinging tightly or letting go.

Phase IV of Improvement Project Complete

Beginning in January 2017, the library embarked on phase four of a renovation plan to update the building, make the library accessible to all users and to fulfill our core values of Relevance, Access, Integrity and Leadership.

PSIP III

This phase remodeled the Friends of the Library used bookstore, Secondhand Prose, relocated six study rooms and added three more, and reconfigured the Teen Space to provide collaborative spaces, update furnishings and mitigate noise. It carries on the improvements of the previous Patron Service Improvement Projects, which renovated service points in the central area of the library, the main restrooms, lobby and the Children's Library.
 

The Patron Service Improvement Project Phase IV will accomplish the following:

  • Reconfigure Secondhand Prose retail space
  • Update lighting and fixtures in Secondhand Prose
  • Relocate six group study rooms
  • Create three additional study rooms
  • Provide collaborative work space
  • Update furnishings in the Northeast corner
  • Mitigate sound
  • Add a printer/copier/scanner to the East End
  • Increase number of electrical outlets and charging stations

Budget

The budgeted costs of $139,240, $686,560 and $67,082 for Secondhand Prose, Northeast corner and Southeast corner, respectively, will be paid with a fund balance transfer.

Additional Information

Canton Public Library’s mission is Connecting Your Community. Connect Your Summer aims to be an exciting way to bring the community together to share their summer experiences and their summer reading, and to emphasize the library as an important resource for all.

Because Connect Your Summer is the mainstay of our summer library programming, we are asking you to help us learn and improve by sharing feedback about your Connect Your Summer experience. The survey will take about five minutes to complete:

The surveys will remain available until August 31, so tell your friends! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us. As a token of our appreciation, there may even be something badge-y in it for you.
