Canton Public Library’s mission is Connecting Your Community. Connect Your Summer aims to be an exciting way to bring the community together to share their summer experiences and their summer reading, and to emphasize the library as an important resource for all.

Because Connect Your Summer is the mainstay of our summer library programming, we are asking you to help us learn and improve by sharing feedback about your Connect Your Summer experience. The survey will take about five minutes to complete:

The surveys will remain available until August 31, so tell your friends! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us. As a token of our appreciation, there may even be something badge-y in it for you.

We currently have a position open with our Circulation Services Department. For complete details on the job opening, please visit our jobs/volunteer page. 

Several major films being released this fall and winter are based on novels you can find in the Library's collection. Get them while you can!

American pastoral by Philip Roth

Starring Jennifer Connelly, Ewan McGregor, and Dakota Fanning. Release date October 21.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, and Ezra Miller. Release date November 18.

If you are interested in learning more about ways to get library books, movies, music and more on your computer or mobile device, TechBoomers has added online learning tools to help you get started. The website has now added tutorials for two of our most popular library apps: Hoopla and OverDrive. TechBoomers tutorials are developed with beginners in mind. Learn at your own pace, and unlock thousands of digital resources for free on your laptop, smartphone, iPad, or other device.

 

Salvation Army logo

The Canton Public Library is working with the Salvation Army of Plymouth to help our students with the basic supplies necessary to be a success in school. From August 1-29, we will accept donations of pens in black, blue and red ink, No. 2 pencils, highlighters and glue sticks. Drop donations in the box near the library's main doors. We thank you for your help in supporting our community.

Canton Township will be making ADA improvements to the library’s sidewalk curbs by easing the grade of the slopes, adding red concrete inserts and adding a crosswalk between the township building and the library.

At least one driveway will be accessible for patrons during construction. Please drive carefully and observe posted detour information. Work is expected to be initiated in August. For reference of the work area, view the attached map.

Minecraft

Participate in themed builds with your friends using Minecraft's Creative Mode. Collaborate, show off your skills, and provide feedback for future events. You never know when we may go survival mode. No swearing or griefing will be allowed. Participants must have a basic knowledge of the game and have their own PC account. Demo, Playstation and XBox accounts are not compatible with our server.

For ages 7 and up.
