2016 Canton Book Project

Canton Book Project

Is there a book you know and love? A title you find yourself recommending over and over again? Maybe it changed your life or your outlook. And maybe it could make a difference to someone else. 

The Canton Book Project is your chance to share your love of reading by giving out books to people in this community who, for whatever reason, don't read for pleasure or own books. Applications are being accepted from members of the community interested in being book givers. Book givers will have the opportunity to share the love of reading by distributing a book of their choice to other members of the community. Readers of all ages are encouraged to apply and books can be of any reading level.

By applying to be a Canton Book Project book giver you agree, if selected, to:

  • Attend the Canton Book Project Reception and Distribution Night on April 12, 2016
  • Give out all of your books by April 30, 2016
  • Seek out those who don’t regularly read as recipients of your books
  • Allow your image and name to be used by the library for promotion about this program

Please fill out the application below, which is due by 6:00 PM on March 4.

Selected book givers will be announced March 25, 2016.

The Children's Library is now closed while the space is renovated and is expected to reopen in early April. Select materials have been relocated the the East End of the library. We will make every effort to provide you with the materials you need and encourage you to take advantage of the reciprocal borrowing privileges you have as a Canton Public Library cardholder. This is also a great time to check out the robust collection of e-media available for children, in print, audio and video formats. Children's programming will continue to be presented. 

Follow the progress of our construction on Facebook and Flickr, and join us in April for the grand reopening of the Children's Library.
