Book & Author Luncheon

The phone number (734-397-0999 x1197) listed at the Book and Author luncheon site at http://www.bookandauthor.org/ references the luncheon in May. Also I wanted to ask if sending in my request form prior to September 1 would be OK with the understanding it will not be processed prior to that date. If there is a better way to contact the luncheon organization either by phone or email to ask a question, please advise. Thanks.

Marko Human Body DVD

Hi, this DVD for children titled Marko Human Body came out in 2009. You have the Marko DVD collection except for this one. It is rated very highly. Can you please purchase this for the library?

2010 Manga Drawing Contest Winners!

We had over 50 people enter our 2010 contest with some of the most amazing art we've ever seen! This year, for our 'Making Waves' theme, bonus points were awarded to those who incorporated something 'water related'. Kudos to all the creative ways you guys did this, including those who used water colors! So many people deserved recognition, but we had to limit ourselves to 3 winners and 4 honorable mentions for each age group. Take a look at all of 2010's manga entries to see the honorable mentions and all the other fantastic artwork! Here are the winners:

mango

I have read that some libraries offer MANGO, an online language program that we can access from home. Do you have it/plan to have it?

Reserving a cd on line

I'm trying to request the All Time Greatest Hits CD by Barry White on line. It's available, yet I get a "not available for request" response.

Completing Summer Reading Logs

I recently e-mailed regarding suggestions for a program to come to in order to complete the summer reading log. Everything is either over or full. Suggestions? My previous e-mail neglected to state that my girls are in the read-to-me program and are 5 years old.

log-in

Is there any way that you can change the website so that to log in you only have to put in a password rather than the 14 digit library card code. I can remember a password but theres no way I can remember my library code.

Temperature

The last study room - very cold. (well, all rooms are very cold)

waiting list for books

Was wondering what it meant if I was 35 of 35 holds. Does that mean I only have to wait for one more hold or 35 holds? Or if I am 7 of 8 holds does that mean Im waiting for 1 more hold or that Im just not the last one to be on hold for that book?

Digitization Project Underway

We are currently digitizing materials related to our history as an institution. We are hard at work scanning photos and news clippings into our new digital collection. Eventually, the collection will be expanded to include materials relating to the history of the whole Canton community. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project!

Here's a sneak peek of what's to come:

Do you remember when the library looked like this?

George H.W. Bush visits the library during his 1992 campaign.

Books for a 15 month old

Hi, I'm looking for books for my 15 month old. I'd like basic ones with pictures and not so many words on the page, also If there are any books that have rymes I'd like to check those out as well. Thank you very much, Robyn.

Passes for State Parks

Hello, I remember last year you had a bunch of passes for free admission to either selected or all (can't remember) Michigan State Parks. Is that a program you have this year as well? Thanks, Janet
 

"quiet rooms"?

I currently live in Westland but was raised in Canton, not far from the library. I have not been to the Canton Library in many years. I was wondering if you have any rooms available for individual or two-person study. I have been to the Plymouth Library several times while my son was at Physical Therapy sessions and they have several indiviual rooms that are great for 1-2 people to work on a project and had a sliding door to keep noise down both inside and outside of the room. Do you have anything like that? I have a project I need to work on that I need to spread out but don't like the idea of being out in the open for everyone to peak over my shoulder or worse, for me to be distracted by what is going on in the "outside world". Thank you.
 

Registering

Hi,
I tried to register for the Program "Water to Wine" next Thursday. It said I could register two people per library card, but it only let me register one. Could you please register one more person for me?
Thanks,
Rebeca

HANDWASHING on Jungle Java employee

The lady preparing my food didn't washed her hands after I watched her change the trash bags, put a new a new bag in the trash container. Also, her hands touched the lid of the trash can while throwing my receipt. She then went on to prepare my food without washing her hands. Obviously, she prepared my food with soiled hands. I think this is a poor sign of sanitation and prevention of health illness that may arise from food preparations. I thought, I would bring this matter to whom ever is concern prior to notifying the State Department. PLEASE address this issue accordingly and in a timely manner before any of the patrons get sick. Thank you.

Cricut for Patron Use

The Library should have a Cricut for patron use.

All cartridges could be checked out, but the system would stay in the library.

A Gypsy could be used to store all of the cartridges centrally for use with the libraries system.

Fax Machine

The new fax machine seems to be very expensive. Why can't we have access to the old system/pricing. With VOIP this shouldn't cost the library anything, but would still generate a small amount of revenue.

Park & Read

The copy of list for Park & Read was not available and time was needed to search for the information.
 

book contest

I went on a wrestling site called wwe.com and it said you can sign up for it's annual yearly wrestlemania reading challenge at a library near you. Would you happen to be one of the many libraries with sign up sheets if so please respond thank you for your time
