Canton Public Library’s mission is Connecting Your Community. Connect Your Summer aims to be an exciting way to bring the community together to share their summer experiences and their summer reading, and to emphasize the library as an important resource for all.
Because Connect Your Summer is the mainstay of our summer library programming, we are asking you to help us learn and improve by sharing feedback about your Connect Your Summer experience. The survey will take about five minutes to complete:
- If you participated in Connect Your Summer, Take the Participant Survey
- If you did not participate, Share your feedback
The surveys will remain available until August 31, so tell your friends! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us. As a token of our appreciation, there may even be something badge-y in it for you.

The light between oceans: a novel [kit] by M.L. Stedman — After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and becomes the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings his young wife Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby's cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast. Against Tom's judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. Returning to the mainland when she is two, Tom and Isabel are reminded that there are other people in the world and discover that their choice has devastated one of them.
