The benefit concert is sold out.
A local Destination Imagination team composed of students from Canton are staging a benefit concert on Saturday, January 14, 6:30-8:30 PM in the library's Community Room, with proceeds being donated to the Canton Public Library. The concert will feature performances by local youth and concessions will be available. Consider supporting these students and the library.
Tickets are available at the Reception Desk for $8 and, when you buy one ticket at the full price, you can get a second ticket half off.
We are delighted to have been chosen by this group of students for their community project, which asks them to find a community need and address that need with their project. They will be entering their project in a local DI competition in February and we wish them good luck.

This book lays out details on the most popular perennials cold climate gardeners favor, and also provides basic information for growing perennial plants. It even gets into propagation techniques and troubleshooting problems with perennials.
