Upcoming sessions

There are no upcoming sessions available.

Our program series, Get to Know Your Neighbor, returns with an opportunity for you to get to know our American Muslim community on March 31, 1:00-4:00 PM. Learn about history and art, sample delicacies, and have face-to-face conversations regarding things you've wondered about. This program is sponsored by the Muslim American Society, the Canton Response to Hate Crimes Coalition and the Canton Public Library.

Sweetwaters

We are partnering with Canton's Sweetwater Coffee & Tea and a team of National Honor Society students to collect gloves, mittens and hats to benefit the Detroit Rescue Mission. Bring donations of new gloves, mittens and hats, all sizes, to the Children's Desk at the library or Sweetwaters on Canton Center Road, then check off the "Warm Your Heart" challenge on our Electrify Your Winter program and receive a special thank you from Sweetwaters. We will collect items January 8 through 31.

Beginning August 21, our west parking lot will be closed for repavement. The lot will be blocked from the entrance at Civic Center Drive; no access will be allowed down the west driveway. We expect the project to be completed on August 28, however, it is weather dependent. In addition to fixing crumbling pavement, two additional handicapped spaces will be added to the lot. 

While the drive is closed, book donations can be dropped at the shelves placed at the front of the library. Overflow parking is available at the Canton Township Administration lot across Veterans Way. Please obey all posted traffic signs. 

We're working with the Canton Public Safety Community Engagement Team to make sure Canton students have what they need to be successful in school. From July 24 through August 15, we're collecting school supplies  to be distributed by Canton Public Safety. Bring donations of the following items to the library.

  • boxes of colored pencils
  • boxes of crayons
  • wide rule spiral notebooks
  • glue sticks

Thanks for helping our students get the school year off to a great start.
