Here's to a Wonderful 35 Years

Our head of Information Services, Rebecca Havenstein-Coughlin,  celebrates 35 years with the Canton Public Library. That's a fine rarity. She found her purpose and place at age 22, but her roots reach to her teenage years. 

"My high school librarian, Peg Smith, probably had the biggest influence on my career," says Havenstein-Coughlin. "She mentored me through my years working with her. I have also always been a big reader. And I figured, Who wouldn't love being in a place where you'd be surrounded by books all day."

Havenstein-Coughlin naturally went on to pursue an English literature degree from Eastern Michigan University and, with the support of her family, friends and bookish peers, soon completed her master's in library science from the University of Michigan.

By her early twenties, after a six-month stint with the Royal Oak Public Library, Havenstein-Coughlin was home. With us. There's been no turning back.

"I love the challenges of being a library manager," she says. "Every day offers new and different opportunities. I especially enjoy my role in planning for the future of our library. It's really awesome to be able to see things that you've envisioned and talked about become a reality."

Join us in congratulating Rebecca on her 35 years of service to the Canton Community.

One summer : America, 1927 by Bill Bryson
The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop. Meanwhile, Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, and Alvin "Shipwreck" Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days. At the same time, the gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business and the first true "talking picture," Al Jolson's "The Jazz Singer," was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry. All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness.
