Police Incident Forces Library Closure

As you know from media reports, a tragic shooting occurred today outside of the library. We are thankful and relieved that library staff and patrons were not injured, and our hearts go out to the families of the two people who were involved. While the library is closed for the remainder of the day today, we will be open our regular hours on Wednesday. We thank all of you who have expressed concern about our well-being; it is a comfort to us all to have our community’s support. We also thank the Canton Township Public Safety Department for their quick and professional response to this emergency, and ask that any inquiries about their investigation be directed to them.

If you had any library materials that were due today, our book return is now open; any materials returned on Wednesday will be backdated as if they were returned Tuesday. If you had any library materials on the Hold Shelf that were set to expire today, you may pick them up anytime before 9 p.m. Wednesday.
