Looking for a lively book discussion? The Canton Seniors Book Discussion Group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from 2:00-3:00PM in Canton Public Library's Friends’ Activity Room (FAR).  Request a copy of MONTANA 1948 by Larry Watson from a librarian at the Information Desk.

Montana 1948 : a novel by Larry Watson
Also available in: audiobook | e-audiobook

From the summer of my twelfth year I carry a series of images more vivid and lasting than any others of my boyhood and indelible beyond all attempts the years make to erase or fade them... " So begins David Hayden's story of what happened in Montana in 1948. The events of that cataclysmic summer permanently alter twelve-year-old David's understanding of his family: his father, a small-town sheriff; his remarkably strong mother; David's uncle Frank, a war hero and respected doctor; and the Haydens' Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations turn the family's life upside down as she relates how Frank has been molesting his female Indian patients. As their story unravels around David, he learns that truth is not what one believes it to be, that power is abused, and that sometimes one has to choose between family loyalty and justice.

This summer the Canton Public Library invites you to sip lemonade and get to know your neighbors on Canton's Front Porch. During the month of July we hope to capture the summertime tradition of the front porch, a place to relax and connect with your neighbors, by transforming the front of the library into a giant front porch.  Our community is stronger when we meet and know one another, so stop by to rock, relax and enjoy conversation with fellow community members.

Throughout the month of July we will be hosting Lemonade Hour on the porch. Ice cold lemonade will be served (while supplies last) during scheduled dates and times. Be sure to stop by to enjoy Canton Public Library's hospitality.
