thats right, neko is starting to make her return!
okay i lied. im not. im still under lockdown for another year.
i do have ways around that. but why not post a few pictures in the mean time?
plus someone really needs to get this site booming again.
my lastest and recently proudest piece, i call it, "the bond" -insert dramatic music-
it represents the bond between pokemon and trainer (thats my pokemon trainer self and my friend jd as a pokemon) and the bond jd and i have.
so yeah...i put a lot of effort into it, im quite proud of it.
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 Thanks!
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?
We had a small turn out for this last meeting, but I wanted to thank everyone who came! The cosplay costumes I saw were awesome!

If you would like to talk about last meeting this is the spot! Feedback is always welcome -both the good and the bad. Thank you to everyone who came! I meant to mention the forum at the meeting but with so much going on I got a little side tracked. We'll see if there are people who came who notice this thread; hmm....I'll have to remember to talk about it next meeting.

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!
Eva M. Davis, Director
