Endowment Fund

To ensure the library's long-term financial stability, an endowment fund has been established under the management of the Canton Community Foundation. A gift to this fund is a gift that grows — the principal remains intact — creating a legacy to benefit Canton residents for years to come.

Use the link to donate online directly through the Canton Community Foundation’s website. If you prefer to write a check, please make it out to the Canton Community Foundation and indicate Canton Public Library in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to Canton Community Foundation, 50430 School House Road, Suite 200 Canton MI 48187

Considering long-term giving or supporting specific programs or services at the library? Contact library director Eva Davis at 734-397-0999.



The Friends' bookstore, Secondhand Prose, will close from December 23 to early February for extensive remodeling as part of Phase IV of the library's Patron Service Improvement Project.
Book donations will not be accepted during the renovation. Please hold book donations until the bookstore reopens in February, or consider taking your donations to the Plymouth District Library.
Updates on the progress of the renovation will be posted on the Friends of the Canton Public Library Facebook page.

Gift/Memorial Donations

The Canton Public Library invites and appreciates donations given in honor or memory of a person or group. A bookplate will be inscribed with their name, and placed on the inside cover of the book purchased in their name.
