We're living in strange and scary times, so it may seem counterintuitive to seemingly amplify your fears by watching a horror movie. For many people, though, horror is a safe, fun and cathartic release from the anxieties that are plaguing them. Horror stories can also be escapist thrill rides that recharge a person's internal batteries, or powerful and often humorous metaphors for examining the problems in the world. With your hoopla digital account, you'll find a diverse collection of scary movies to satisfy any kind of horror craving. Why not relieve some anxiety and have a little fun with these thematic horror double features?

Library dedication plaque 1988

Yo! You’ll be seeing, like, a lot of totally ‘80s-inspired posts over the next month and a half, and some CPL programs will be taken over by the ‘80s in October. While the library’s lobby was under construction early this summer, a rad time capsule was uncovered! It was placed there when CPL moved to this building in 1988 after eight years on the third floor of the Township Administration Building. So much has changed over the last 31 years, but our connection to the community has been present since day one. 

So throw on your parachute pants and keep your eyes on our social media pages for #ThrowbackThursday and #TBT posts to see how much the library has grown, #80sPopCulture blogs for major nostalgia and #80sActivities for CPL programs. Because (spoiler alert), the only way Dance Your Fanny Off can possibly get any better is with "Walkin' On Sunshine." We’ll even have an Experience to Go Kit fitting the theme.

We are celebrating to the max, and we’re not afraid to get cheesy; after all, we’re talking about the era of shoulder pads and big hair. All of this ‘80s goodness is leading up to the #PrimeTimeEvent on Wednesday, October 16, where we will break the glorious time capsule open and have a gnarly patron party, the Prime Time Capsule Event. In the style of prime time news, our mustached reporter will be covering the event if you can’t make it, so use #PrimeTimeCapsule (hashtag or pound sign, depending on the decade) the day of or for general updates now until October 16.

For your convenience, here is a printable list of our September programs.

As part of the 9th annual Canton Acts of Culture Week, our staff created a self-guided art tour in the form of a map. Pick one up at the Main Desk if you're interested. Discover our sculptures, quilts, paper mache works, bronze statues, vintage posters and more. You can also view a video or see most of the art with a 'walk' through via Google.
