RETURN BOX OR DROP OFF BOX

IS THERE ANYWAY THAT YOU CAN PUT ANOTHER BOX BY THE MAIN DRIVE TO THE LIBRARY? EVERY TIME I TRY TO RETURN MY BOOKS THERE IS ALWAYS A NUMBER OF CARS PARKED OR JUST SITTING THERE WAITING TO PICK UP THEIR KIDS. IT MAKES IT QUITE HARD TO DRIVE AROUND THE CIRCLE DRIVE, TO RETURN THE BOOKS ETC. BECAUSE THE CIRCLE DRIVE IS NOT WIDE ENOUGH..... PLEASE CONSIDER THIS! THANK YOU. LINDA HORGER

Renewing books online

I have logged into my account but cant seem to find where I can renew my books or even look at the items checked out. Help please Smile Thanks!

new stores/developments

I'm always interested to know what is being built, what new businesses are going in, and which businesses are moving. When I see bulldozers or other activity, I always wish there was a sign or something that would indicate what's happening.

There's a new building being built next to the CVS at Cherry Hill and Canton Center. Rumor has it that the Dairy Queen (currently located next to Lucky Hair Company) is moving in there, but the building looks big enough that it could hold more than just a DQ.

I also noticed that the vacant lot at Warren and Lilley is being worked on.

Does anyone know the skinny on these or other changes? Is there an existing place to find this info online?

CPL Wins National Award

Library Journal cover, 2013-04-01We have great news to share with you! The Canton Public Library has been named the inaugural recipient of the 2013 LibraryAware Community Award, co-sponsored by industry magazine Library Journal and LibraryAware, part of EBSCO Publishing's NoveList Division.

The award "emphasizes the library's engagement with the community," and is an acknowledgement of the tremendous accomplishments of the library staff. Since I became library director in 2008, we have focused on the community through our partnerships, volunteers, programs, and services. The strategic vision of our library board guides our work; the support--moral and financial--given to us by the Friends of the Library is essential to our success; and our partnerships with the Township, area schools, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations help us Connect Your Community. My staff uses these connections to provide you with programs, collections, and services that improve Canton's quality of life.

Most importantly, we owe our successes to the patronage and support of our community. You are the key to what we do every day, to the tune of nearly 600,000 visits and 1.8 million items circulated annually.

I am proud of my staff for their hard work, and thrilled to see them recognized on a national level. We are planning a Community Celebration on May 10 (details to follow). Please mark your calendars and plan on joining me in congratulating our fine library staff on winning this award!

Best,
Eva sig
