The Canton Public Library invites you to sip lemonade and get to know your neighbors on Canton's Front Porch. This summer we hope to capture the summertime tradition of the front porch, a place to relax and connect with your neighbors, by transforming the front of the library into a giant front porch.  Our community is stronger when we meet and know one another, so stop by to rock, relax and enjoy conversation with fellow community members.

Ice cold lemonade will be served (while supplies last) during scheduled dates and times. Be sure to stop by to enjoy Canton Public Library's hospitality.
