Zumba is a fitness class that combines dance and fitness. It is all the rage nowadays. This dance mingles Latin and International music with a fun and effective workout system. Dance routines like Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, Mambo, Hip-Hop and Flamenco are used in this class. The fusion of Latin dance rhythms and moves provides an excellent group exercise experience.
So in partnership with Canton Township's 100 Days of Health and as a part of our multicultural programming, join us for a lively, fun session of Zumba on Saturday, January 21 at 11:00 AM.

Mens Bathrooms Pee all over floor at Urinals every day.

Hi, I use your library to study and use the men's bathroom. I can't remember a time where the floor underneath the men's urinals has been free of urine. My feet actually stick to the floor each time after using them. This happens in the majority of times I have used the bathroom. Do you actually clean the bathroom floor daily? Do the little kids pee on the floor? I cannot understand this.. I have used bathrooms in public places before, but never have seen it this bad on a reoccuring basis.

international books

I would like to have a section for arabic books.

Verlander Named American League MVP

Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander has also been named the American League's Most Valuable Player for 2011. He is the first starting pitcher to win MVP since 1986 when Roger Clemens took the honor. Only six other pitchers in MLB history have won both the Cy Young Award and the MVP honors in the same year: the Dodger's Sandy Koufax in 1963, St. Louis' Bob Gibson and Detroit's Denny McLain in 1968, Oakland's Vida Blue in 1971, Milwaukee's Rollie Fingers in 1981 and Detroit's Willie Hernandez in 1984. Verlander received 13 of 28 first place votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America. Boston center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury came in second followed by Toronto right fielder Jose Bautista. Tigers first baseman Miquel Cabrera finished fifth.

e-mail newsletter

Have you all checked out the Plymouth Library's Website? Good example of what a website can be. the newsletter is OK, but not laid out in any kind of inviting way. Again, the Ply Library has an email they call Wowbrary where they showcase the latest acquisitions. It's fun to scroll thru and I'm drawn in every time. I wasn't drawn in to the newsletter from the Canton Library, though I realize you are doing something different. Plymouth is still announcing it's programs in hard copy, but again very invitingly done with a great layout. I'll bet you can do better!

computer classes

I am interested in taking some of your computer classes. Im hearing impaired and want to know the size of these classes. How many people maximum, do u allow per class? Im concerned about not getting one on one attention. Please let me know because I would like to take the Nov 9th class so I will be looking forward to hearing back from you this week. Thank you so much!

Thank you

I love this library. I come from Alabama 2 months a year. I found the people here are very helpful and very friendly. The collections of books and the departments are great. I love it. Thank you very much.

Unable to submit suggestion for purchase

I have been attempting to submit a suggestion for purchase of: SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN DVD. The website sends me to a link to subscribe to the newsletter, which I did; but it will not allow me to go back to submitting the request--Any suggestions on how I can get out of this loop. I have tried numerous times. Thanks for your assistance.

Saving documents

It needs to be posted by all computers that in order to save you need a jump/thumb drive. I came once with a floppy disk and once with a cdrw disk. Both on SAME DAY! I should have been told that saving can only be done on a jump drive. Then I was told "you can buy a drive for $20." Thanks but no thanks! I'll use that to buy gas that I WASTED coming back!
