The library purchase from itunes in bulk from requested songs by patrons and sell them at a discount to those patrons and, subsequently, other interested parties. I would like "Ghostriders in the Sky" by The Outlaws just to get it going.
I recently requested an article from a trade publication that the library did not have. The article was photocopied from the publication at another library, and then forwarded to me through the mail.
Why not email me a PDF version of the article. This would save time, and I could recieve my article quickly. More importantly this would SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the Library's costs.
CPL has been blessed with supportive patrons and an excellent staff. We are proud to have one of our own singled out for the wonderful work she does with teenagers in our community. Please join me in congratulating Anna on this accomplishment!
Update [10/28/2010]: On Saturday, October 30 Wayne County plans to close Palmer Road at Canton Center. This closure is necessary to construct the Canton Center/Palmer Road intersection pavement and should last about 2 weeks. Glenngarry Road at Canton Center will be open to traffic on Saturday. Seabrook at Canton Center will be closed Saturday. Please drive carefully and follow all posted signs.
Update [10/14/2010]: On Monday, October 18 Wayne County plans to begin the paving of the remaining three lanes of Canton Center Road. In addition, paving of Palmer Road east of Canton Center will also begin. Both roads will be open to traffic (with flag control) but there will not be access to Glengarry subdivision from Canton Center Road; use Palmer Road. Please drive carefully, follow all posted signs and plan extra travel time through these construction zones.
Update [10/5/2010]: Civic Center Boulevard construction has been completed and a new traffic pattern has been created. The east driveway of the library is now a right turn only. There is no turnaround on Civic Center. To access westbound Civic Center, Veteran's Way, Heritage Parkway or Summit Parkway, you must use the west driveway to exit the library.
Update [8/31/2010]: Traffic on Canton Center Road has been shifted to the west side. Regular traffic access to the boulevard entry at Civic Center is now restored. Construction continues on the east side of the roadway. Please plan extra time to get to the library, and obey all flagmen and construction signs.
Update [8/6/2010]: Access to Summit Parkway from Canton Center Road is scheduled to be closed until August 12. Use Heritage Park Drive to Veteran's Way to Summit Parkway for access. Please plan extra time to get to the library, and obey all flagmen and construction signs.
Update [7/28/2010]: Paving of the west (library) side of Canton Center Rd. will begin on July 29 and should be completed by August 6. Summit Parkway will be closed during this time, and there will be intermittent lane closures on Canton Center Rd. Please plan extra time to get to the library, and obey all flagmen and construction signs.
Update [6/29/2010]: Inbound (west) Civic Center Boulevard will be closed starting July 6. Outbound (east) Civic Center Boulevard will be switched from its current one-way traffic flow to a two-way traffic flow. Please follow posted detours and use extreme caution when traveling this section of roadway. Also, the sidewalk from Heritage to Civic Center along southbound Canton Center will be torn up. Pedestrians should use the sidewalk that runs along Canton Township Hall to access the library.
Update [5/26/2010]: The traffic on Canton Center Road has been shifted to the east side of the roadway and a new 3-way stop traffic light has been installed at the intersection of Heritage Drive (just north of the library) and Canton Center. Library patrons are advised to use Heritage Drive to enter and exit the library as Civic Center boulevard is frequently blocked by construction vehicles. Follow posted signs to access Canton Township Hall, Canton Public Library and the Summit on the Park.In April, work begins to widen Canton Center Road to five lanes, from Cherry Hill to south of Palmer. The project is dependent on the weather and is planned to last through November. Check here often for updates and travel advisories.
Intersection improvements at Canton Center and Palmer will make Palmer and Summit Parkway inaccessible for part of the construction. Mast arm traffic signals will be installed at Heritage Park Drive and at Palmer/Summit Parkway. New storm sewers and curbs will be installed along the entire length.
Changes are planned to Civic Center Blvd., specifically narrowing the island closest to Canton Center to ease left turns from Canton Center onto Civic Center and into the Glengarry subdivision. Check out the full pdf of the plan (warning:40mb.) for complete technical details.
April through the first week of MayUtilities relocation and storm sewer work.
Second week of May through mid-JulyThe west side of Canton Center will be under construction. Two-way traffic will be maintained on the east side of Canton Center. Left turns will be allowed, which may create backups. Summit Parkway will be closed at Canton Center during this period. This is when the work will take place on Civic Center Blvd. The westbound side (closest to Township Hall) will be closed and reconstructed. Two-way traffic will be routed to the eastbound side (library side). There will also be some minor work done at the Heritage Park Dr. intersection during this period. We suggest you use Heritage Park Dr. to Veterans' Way to Civic Center Blvd. to get to the library, the Summit, Heritage Park, and the golf course.
Mid-July through SeptemberTraffic will shift to the west side of Canton Center, with work taking place on the east side. Palmer will be closed at Canton Center during this period. Cherry Hill will be the posted alternate route.
October and NovemberFinish work on the center lane, lane markings, signals, and clean-up.
There are no plans to install a traffic signal at Canton Center and Civic Center. The close proximity of the signals at Heritage Park and Summit Parkway do not warrant another traffic signal between them.
Work may take place evenings and weekends.

sheesh im trying to get this forum booming again!!!
Alright, name a manga or anime you've read or seen that's awesome that you don't think too many people know about, but should. Have you got your own hidden gem you've discovered? Maybe there's something you wish they would release in the U.S. and they haven't yet. Here's your chance to speak your mind.
Personally I'm really curious about Kobato, the new series by CLAMP. The manga's coming out this spring state side, but who knows when the anime will get here. I think it just aired in Japan a little bit ago. I've read really good things about it though, so I really want to read/see it. I tend to like CLAMP though, I admit, so I'm biased.
holy crap my login still works!!!
holy hell guys, what has happened to the animanga web site?
i fall off the face of the earth and this what happens?
jk, but still i was kinda looking forward to seeing all the activity ive missed. at least the actual meetings are alive and well.
oh how i miss everyone.
you to nerd-kun! i miss you a lot too!
anywho, we need to get these forums party-ing again!
WHERE THE HELL IS EVERYONE?! T^T
and why did the forums have to change so much? they were much better the way they were.
how are the meetings going? able to keep everyone controlled nerd-kun? showing good animes, having a good time, eating lots of pocky? ahh, thats the life ^_^
I can email my verification of employment in Canton if needed to renew my library card.
Each month, CPL patrons request nearly 1,000 items from other libraries through MeLCat, our statewide interlibrary loan service, and more than 8,000 people login to our Databases to use the Michigan eLibrary resources to research health and wellness using the Health and Wellness Resource Center, find out about their ancestors using HeritageQuest Online, read back issues of articles in magazines and newspapers through General Reference Center Gold, and find their next favorite read using Novelist or What Do I Read Next? The Governor's Executive Order has placed funding for these statewide services in jeopardy; these are not services that CPL can afford to provide alone, particularly during this recession where our budget has already been reduced by 10% in 2009 and will be reduced by another 6% to 10% in 2010.
Many of you have expressed your support for the library's successful joint services and resource sharing. We continue to work with the Michigan Library Association and our elected officials in the Michigan Senate and House of Representatives to encourage them to support continued funding for MeLCat interlibrary loan and the Michigan eLibrary, because without their intervention, these services will go away. We are doing our best to maintain services, and will keep you updated as this situation develops.
The Eureka Seven movie is commng to select U.S. theaters on Sept. 24 (only)...No word on which theaters those are going to be yet, but thought I'd throw this info out there for any Eureka Seven fans.
Because we need one of these, and I KNOW other people that read it.
Has anyone been keeping up with the manga releases? I just read chapter 33 and...wow, Ciel's servents aren't so useless anymore (to be honest I kind of expected that, but not in this way).

Here is a place to put anime links that you have found. Yeah! The more the better!
Now, one thing I ask however, is to be careful with your links. There are lots of places where both anime and manga are available online for free, some illegal, and some legal (one site that is legal is www.crunchyroll.com, for instance, which is awesome... but I digress).Try to avoid linking directly to sites that may not be legal if you can help it. For instance, while there are many places where you can watch Naruto Shippuden online, and a lot of them are legal, for the Naruto manga Viz owns the rights for this and has not made it available online (besides some sample chapters), so if you find it avaialble on mangafox or something -not quite legal. Try to stay away from linking directly to those sites on here if you can. That doesn't mean you can't talk about them, or mention the site. It's foolish to pretend they don't exist. Just try not to make a direct link to it, that's all.
Here's another example: a link to youtube of Fruits Basket ep. 1 part 1 of 3, not so good ; a Link to youtube of people doing crazy cosplay or a link to a trailer for a new anime: always good.
