Thank You Canton Leisure Services

We are lucky to have great partners throughout the community. On many occasions, the library and Canton Leisure Services combine forces to provide fun activities for the community. We've worked together to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday and Eco-Week. Most recently, Camp Canton visited the library for a beach party filled with stories, games and crafts.

The library has participated in events such as storytime at the Farmer's Market, the Trick or Treat Parade and the Holiday Brunch with Santa. Each year Canton Leisure Services generously donates the Recreation Station Bouncer and Climbing Wall to add excitement to our Summer Celebration.
This partnership helps the library fulfill our mission of connecting our community.
