Tutoring at Canton Library

My daughter loves the tutors that come in on Tuesdays and Thursdays for math. My daughter received an A+ on her math quiz. She also enjoys talking with them. Thanks so much!

Other comment

Just want to say Thanks for the notification--good idea and I dropped off the 2 books this AM-thanks again!


CD Player

I've requested before that the library have a CD player available so people can sample the books on CD's without having to check them out. If people brought their own headphones, it should be no problem. Or maybe we could play a disk on a computer, using our own headphones. Thank you.

Can we buy this? What is the price range?

Video Games Removed from Shelves

I noticed that some of the video games had been removed from the children's section and are now located behind the check-out desk. I'm assuming they were moved because of issues with damage or theft? When I asked one of the librarians about the change, they said that the games would be located behind the circulation desk for the foreseeable future. I can understand the need to keep those games safe, but it is very difficult for children to view and select video games when you have to wait your turn in the checkout line to ask for the vidoe game cart and then attempt to view the games on the cart from across the checkout desk (especially if the child in question isn't tall enough to see over the desk). And small children aren't able to easily browse the games using the online catalog. If you don't already have a solution planned, I have a suggestion that might save time/effort/frustration for both your staff and your patrons. The library I used to work at allowed patrons to check out CDs and videos. We kept the actual media behind the desk in a locked cabinet and patrons could bring up a card (with a color copy of the album/movie cover on it) up to the desk to "check out." It allowed patrons to easily browse through the available selections, while keeping the actual CDs/videos safe.

Army/Iraq and Test Proctoring

Hello, I am a U.S. soldier coming home on leave from Iraq. I have a final exam in a class that I am taking during that time(Early April). Do you proctor exams at all? If so, I will need to get some contact information so that I can have my school send the exam. If you can, please respond to my email. Thank you for your time.

Stitches: a memoir

All I can say is this book is amazing. OK, maybe I should explain a bit more. David Small is an artist usually known for his award winning picture books, but here he brings us something very different. Stitches is a darker tale for a much older audience. It's an autobiographical account of his own childhood, a childhood that was not all sunshiny, let me warn you... it's unsettling, it's moving, it's powerful — perhaps in part because it's true; it's one of those books that amazes you with its ability to tell so much with so few words. A masterpiece. Check it out.

Author Book Giveaway

Good morning! I work for author Susan Mallery. Susan loves libraries. She appreciates everything that librarians do to match the right books with the right readers. Yesterday, on her Facebook page (, she asked her fans to nominate their public library to receive a copy of one of her books. Congratulations! You’ve been nominated. She has about ten books to give away, and so far, she’s gotten just over 60 nominations. She’s going to choose the winning libraries at random later this week and will announce the winners on her Facebook page. In the meantime, she’d like to offer some bookmarks to all the libraries that were nominated. If you’d like to have some bookmarks for your patrons, please reply to this email with your mailing address. Also, please let me know if you’d like to be added to Susan’s email list to receive an email when she releases a new book.

can't get into books and more again

Unable to assign Star-rating when items are sorted on Due-date

This is just a minor annoyance, but one I keep tripping over. I often view the items I have checked-out (from my account), and sort them based on due-date order. However, if I then try to assign a star-rating with this sort-order in effect, the next screen that is displayed shows NO items (empty list). When I refresh the display (say by clicking 'Sort by Check-out'), the items are then displayed again, but my star-rating is lost. This is clearly a bug. However, I personally think that the default sort-order should be on Due-date, since this is probably much more important to patrons (to avoid late-fees), than when the items were originally checked-out (especially if some items are renewed). I'd greatly appreciate if the bug is fixed... and the default sort-order is changed. Many thanks.

New DVDs

I've checked the feature films and there hasn't been any recent new items listed. I have my computer set for the latest additions. Sooo has nothing been added to dvd collection??

Robert B Parker "Brimstone"

On line shows 3 copies available. I have make 2 trips to get this book and there is no copies available. Could you check this out and see if the computer took a vacation? FYI we are very pleased with the our library. THank you.

Inconsistency of email notifications

I have received many email notifications for due materials in the past. A few weeks ago I did not receive a notification. I was told it had something to do with a down server. I have received notifications since then. I, again, did not receive a notification for a book that is due tomorrow. Is there a reason that I didn't receive one this time? I always keep track of printed receipts and am aware of due dates, but the inconsistency of this system can be very frustrating.

Music CD's

Is there a file I can get that lists ALL the Music CD's you have. I have tried the website, but the list is long, and it is so slow to get through the alphabet. (I cannot find a way to search for a specific title or author using the web site). Please help.

Canton Center Road

A traffic light is needed at Canton Ctr & Heritage Dr. Also, Canton Ctr needs resurfacing and a longer right turn lane from the north. Can't you appeal to the Township of Canton?
