Your tax-deductible contributions help support library collections, programs, and services.

Donate to our operating fund.

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.



Donated materials may be placed in the brown wooden structure behind the building. If your donation can be added to the library's collection, it will be. If not, your donation goes to Secondhand Prose used bookstore for fundraising purposes.

We're looking for

  • Books
  • DVDs
  • CDs

We're not looking for magazines, textbooks published before 2000, encyclopedias older than eight years, dirty or otherwise damaged items, record albums, computer hardware, or CD-ROMs.

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.
