Dogs

Reading to a friendly dog has become a popular program here at CPL. But you don't have to save your dog reading for that program alone. I bet your own dog would love for you to read to them, especially a book about dogs. The kids department has lots of fiction and non-fiction books on dogs. To keep it short and simple, check out some fun poems in It's About Dogs, Little Dogs Poems, or I Didn't Do it, which offers a irresistible glimpse into your puppy's mind.

list of (new) New York Times best sellers in the library

hi there! How can I find a list of the latest New York Times best selling books in the library that are new??

Local talent

I've been thinking and I believe it would be a good idea for the library to have some sort of program to help local talented writers show off their work. Also to help them spread the word of what they are doing. I think such a program could be beneficial to the whole community.

Question about one of your events coming up...

I saw this on your homepage... Islam Awareness Week — Muslim Women in Canton Living As Muslim Women In Canton will feature the daily lives of several professional women, including business owners, doctors, engineers, students, scholars, mothers and more. Join us on March 24 at 7:00PM in the Community Room to hear the accomplishments and challenges of being Muslim in Canton. This program is presented by members of the Muslim Community of Western Suburbs in celebration of Islam Awareness Week. Do you plan to have a CHRISTIAN women in Canton event, and the same as you mention above with the Muslim women? Just wondering. Gayle Bortz

March is Reading Month Fun!

March is National Reading Month. This annual celebration is designed to encourage reading as a fun activity for the whole family. Various community organizations are helping us promote reading in fun ways. On March 4, the Plymouth Canton Preschool staff presented a storytime in honor of Dr. Seuss. Later in the month, Community Finanacial and the Kiwanis Club of Canton will be at the library to share their love of reading. Come on in to help get your children started on a lifetime of reading!

Program Registration Email Confirmations

If you have registered for a program in last couple of days, you may have noticed that you did not get an email confirmation. This does not mean that your registration did not go through. We are experiencing problems with our email confirmations, but are working to fix the problem. You can confirm your registration by checking My Account. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Rating material, books, audiobooks etc.

Hello, I noticed when I renewed some items online that there was a portion of each listing with some stars that would indicate a rating of some type. I would assume but perhaps incorrectly that the rating portion would be ratings from material users. None of the stars in any of the audiobooks I was renwing had highlighted stars. I humorously
thought my choices might be so bad that they merited no rating at all but seriously thought that perhaps people did not rate the materials very often. My questions are this: are the ratings indeed user ratings and if so how does one go about submitting a rating? I can think of some materials that I would rate poorly and some that I would highly recommend. I looked around the website so I wouldn't bother you but found no leads on submitting ratings comments. Thank you for considering my questions. I'll watch for your answers.

Hey kids!
So Wednesday was my first book discussion! And I have to say a good time was had by all! You know, you can still read our book discussion? It's over on Sleepy Bear's blog. You may have to scroll down a bit to get to the beginning of the conversation. It's fun to talk to friends about books. I also learned a lot about Sleepy Bear, and his friend Moosey-Moose too. Thanks Sleepy Bear for reading with us! :o)
Bear Hugs!

Copying the Buros Mental Measurments Yearbook (b1516390)

I have a library card issued by the Manchester District Library. I have to do a research paper for college, for which I will need to document / reference 3 test reviews from the 18th Buros Mental Measurments Yearbook (b1516390). My questions are: Is there any issue with copying these reviews? What is the cost for a copy? Can I add monies to my account at the library if I need more funds?

Blood Drive

Don't have a pint — donate it to the American Red Cross blood drive instead, when they set up shop at the library on Friday, February 17. Reservations are being accepted now: in person at the Reception Desk, by phone at 734-397-0999 ext. 1071, or by email to gladdenk@cantonpl.org. Or just walk in any time between 10:00 AM-3:45 PM. There's a critical need for blood right now, so please drop by to donate. And be sure to bring a friend. (You must be 17 years of age and able to donate a full pint of blood to be eligible.)

Requested item due back in June 2010

Good Morning, I requested the DVD Nip Tuck Season 5, part 2 disc 2. It is currently on my hold request. When I clicked on the item for more details I learned the item was due back on 6/24/10. The item is marked billed. I assume that to mean the patron has been billed for their way overdue item. Given the current status of the item are there plans to repurchase the missing disc? Thank you in advance. Kind Regards, Shannon

Hey kids! And Sleepy Bear!
Well, the book discussion is a go! Make sure you come to the library on Wednesday, February 23rd at 2:00PM to talk books with me and Sleepy Bear. It's going to be so fun!
Thanks, Sleepy Bear, for the reminder that you live in a different time zone than we do. I forget that sometimes! We get sunlight and new days before you do, but you get the weather first. Funny how that works. It has been so warm in Michigan the last couple days that we do not have any snow left. But from your blog it sounds like we will be getting some soon!
There are so many kids to watch in the library, that I don't usually get time to read until everyone goes home. But when I do get time to read, I like to to the fish in our fish tank. I don't know if they listen though. What do you like to read? I like books about bears. One of my favorites is Big Smelly Bear by Britta Teckentrup. Have you read it? I hope it's not about me! I'm big but I hope I'm not smelly!
Talk to you Wednesday for our book discussion!
Bear Hugs!

The wall poster at the entrance of the kid library

Where can we get the wall poster at the entrance of the kid section? The poster is about swap and bridge. It is made by a lot of kid paintings. My son's painting is inside. Like to get the poster. Thank you!

Suggested eBooks: Safari Online

Hi Canton Library, I am a Canton resident and am writing to enquire if the library has looked at Safari e-books as a resource for providing technical and business books. I would love to see some of their computer programming titles being offered. They have a lot of books that are really expensive to buy and really hard to find. The title that I'm most interested in right now is "MacRuby: The Definitive Guide. Ruby and Cocoa on OS X" (ISBN 978-1-4493-8037-3). More info on that book can be found here http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920000723.do. The link to Safari books is here http://www.safaribooksonline.com/. They claim to offer programs for public libraries, but they have pretty well priced themselves out of my family budget with their unlimited plan costing $42/mo. Thanks for your time, Whit
