More than half the states were celebrating Labor Day by 1893, but it wasn't made a national holiday until June 28, 1894, when President Grover Cleveland signed it into law.

E. Davis informed the board that the Administrative Assistant for Human Resources, Marian Nicholson, had accepted the position of Department Head of Business Services, effective September 22, 2014.
Davis also expressed her gratitude to Trustee T. Hartnett for representing the board earlier in the week at the annual staff picnic. At the event, the Friends of the Library announced the recipients of their annual Education Awards: $1,000 each was presented to five staff members and one volunteer.
Trustee Fausone questioned what the Belleville Area District Library millage defeat meant for the Canton Public Library. Davis said that the failed bond had been for construction of the proposed new lakefront library and renovation of another building which was to be used as a satellite branch, plus additional operating revenue. The Belleville area library has an existing operating millage, but she has not heard from director Deb Green as to what their next step will be. Currently, Belleville area residents may check out a maximum of ten (10) items from the Canton Public Library.
