Library staff will be available to answer questions, provide fun give-away items and most importantly, help community members to become organ, eye and tissue donors. If you are unable to stop by during the scheduled time and are interested in becoming a donor, register <a href="http://www.giftoflifemichigan.org/">online</a>.<br /><br /> The Canton Public Library has partnered with the Gift of Life Michigan in this endeavor. By hosting this campaign, we hope to educate, inspire and empower patrons to join Michigan's organ and donor registry and help save the lives of one or several of the 3,000 Michigan residents currently waiting for an organ transplant.</p> http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/save-lives-register-become-organ-and-tissue-donor-today#comments Gift of Life Michigan Libraries for Life Organ Donation Thu, 04 Sep 2014 19:55:43 +0000 obrienbc 75809 at http://www.cantonpl.org A Key to Hope http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/key-hope <img alt="" src="https://www.cantonpl.org/sites/default/files/images/Drivers%20License%20with%20organ%20donor%20symbol.preview.jpg" style="float:right;" />Imagine struggling to walk, breath, or even see loved ones. It takes just one organ donor to save up to eight lives and enhance 50 more. Watch for our Second Annual <a href="http://bit.ly/ML4Life">Michigan Libraries for Life</a> campaign here at CPL during the first week of October to join the <a href="https://services.sos.state.mi.us/OrganDonor/Pages/Registry.aspx">Organ Donor Registry</a>.<br /> In the meantime, register to be an <a href="http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7-127-34786---,00.html">organ donor</a> at <a href="http://expressSOS.com">ExpressSOS.com</a>, the online Secretary of State, here at the library. In so doing, it offers hope to the more than 3,200 Michigan residents currently waiting for the gift of life. http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/key-hope#comments ExpressSOS Gift of Life Organ and Tissue Donation Secretary of State Thu, 04 Sep 2014 04:00:00 +0000 obrienbc 65759 at http://www.cantonpl.org Teen Adventurers and Survivors http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/teen-adventurers <a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search/X?searchtype=t&amp;searcharg=being+henry&amp;searchscope=10&amp;SORT=D&amp;submit=Search">Being Henry David</a> by Cal Armistead<br /><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search/X?searchtype=t&amp;searcharg=why+we+took&amp;searchscope=10&amp;SORT=D&amp;submit=Search">Why We Took the Car</a> by Wolfgang Herrndorf<br /><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10?/tnavigating/tnavigating/1%2C6%2C8%2CB/exact&amp;FF=tnavigating+early&amp;1%2C2%2C">Navigating Early</a> by Clare Vanderpool<br /><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search/X?searchtype=t&amp;searcharg=searching+for+sky&amp;searchscope=10&amp;SORT=D&amp;submit=Search">Searching for Sky</a> by Jillian Cantor<br /><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10?/tpeak/tpeak/1%2C4%2C6%2CB/exact&amp;FF=tpeak&amp;1%2C2%2C/indexsort=-">Peak</a> by Roland Smith<br /><a href="https://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10?/tlet%27s+get+lost/tlets+get+lost/1%2C1%2C3%2CB/frameset&amp;FF=tlets+get+lost&amp;3%2C%2C3/indexsort=-">Let's Get Lost</a> by Adi Alsaid<br /><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1602171">Museum of Intangible Things</a> by Wendy Wunder<br /><a href="https://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10?/tnight+of+the+how/tnight+of+the+how/1%2C2%2C2%2CB/frameset&amp;FF=tnight+of+the+howling+dogs&amp;1%2C1%2C/indexsort=-">Night of the Howling Dogs</a> by Graham Salisbury<br /><a href="https://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10?/Xwhite+darkness&amp;SORT=D/Xwhite+darkness&amp;SORT=D&amp;SUBKEY=white+darkness/1%2C27%2C27%2CB/frameset&amp;FF=Xwhite+darkness&amp;SORT=D&amp;1%2C1%2C">White Darkness: a Novel</a> by Geraldine McCaughrean<br /><a href="https://catalog.cantonpl.org/search~S10/?searchtype=t&amp;searcharg=until+it+hurts+to+stop&amp;searchscope=10&amp;sortdropdown=-&amp;SORT=DZ&amp;extended=0&amp;SUBMIT=Search&amp;searchlimits=&amp;searchorigarg=Xuntil+it+hurts+to+stop%26SORT%3DDZ">Until it Hurts to Stop</a> by Jennifer R.
