Is there a book you know and love? A title you find yourself recommending over and over again? Maybe it changed your life or your outlook. And maybe it could make a difference to someone else.

Book givers will have the opportunity to share the love of reading by distributing a book of their choice to other members of the community. Readers of all ages are encouraged to apply and books can be of any reading level.

Attend the Canton Book Project Reception and Distribution Night on April 12, 2016
Give out all of your books by April 30, 2016
Seek out those who don’t regularly read as recipients of your books
Allow your image and name to be used by the library for promotion about this program

Selected book givers will be announced March 25, 2016.

buffalo solidiers

African-Americans have fought in military conflicts since colonial days. However, the Buffalo Soldiers, comprised of former slaves, freemen and Black Civil War soldiers, were the first to serve during peacetime. During the Westward movement these soldiers were responsible for escorting settlers, cattle herds, railroad crews and building the infrastructure needed for new settlements to flourish. Join us April 20 at 7:00 PM as we welcome James H. Mills of the Buffalo Soldiers Heritage Center. Mr. Mills will share the history of these legendary African American U.S. Army regiments.
