2009 Design Excellence Award

Canton Public Library is the proud recipient of a Design Excellence Award for commercial landscape. The award was presented to the library by the Canton Committee for Community Excellence. The colorful READ berm, on the east side of the library facing Canton Center Road, was recognized by the Committee as promoting community pride. The library strives to be a pleasant, welcoming environment for the many patrons who visit. (A special thanks to Reliable Landscaping of Canton which does a wonderful job of taking care of the library grounds, especially the ladies who take care of the READ flowers.)
