CANTON, MI—The Canton Public Library announced the renewal of a $2,000 Target grant to be used to continue to support the Family Reading Night program.
“Our partnership with Target continues with the awarding of this grant, which allows the Canton Public Library and the Friends of the Canton Public Library to maintain our commitment to early childhood literacy and improving lives in our community,” said Eva Davis, library director.
Over 2000 people have participated in the Target Family Reading Night program since its 2009 inception. The program offers stories, games and snacks to families with children ages 4-9 and provides a book for the family to take home and share. It encourages early childhood literacy by demonstrating techniques and supplying a book for families to model at home.
The Best in Show Dog Show was a lot of fun! We took a lot more pictures than just these, which we'll put up soon; but for now, enjoy these snaps of our canine friends and their families as they entered or exited the show.
