Your library would like to give back to you this summer! In honor of the Summer Reading theme, Be Creative @ Your Library, the Canton Public Library staff decided to make works of art for you to win. We've got quilters, knitters, woodworkers, photographers and many other creative people here. For a view of our craftsy items, check out our Flickr page.
What do you get when you mix Craigslist with Google Maps? MapsKrieg.com! A nifty website that allows you to search visually for real estate, rental properties and sublets by region, neighborhood, even down to the street you'd like to live on. Don't you just love a good mash-up?
Looking for something fun and educational to do during the summer break? Check out Summer-Daycamps.com, a website where you can search for summer day camps by area code. On Kidscamps.com you can search for day camps and away camps. Just imagine, you could spend the summer designing a video game, composing a song, caring for farm animals, painting, collecting worms or becoming a dramatic actress in a theater camp. Summer is bound to be fun with these possibilities!
