Michigan Agriculture

Hello, I attended a program at your library that was given by someone who was showing information about the agricultural products that grow in the state of Michigan. She offered some food from Michigan companies. I took her card - but cannot locate it now - could you please tell me who that person was or the organization she was representing. I have the magazine she gave out but I wish I had saved the card. Thank you for any information you might have. Alfred Brock

WHY DOES THE WORLD EXIST? An Existential Detective Story. By Jim Holt. According to the NY Times "Best Books of 2012", this book should be listed as Non-Fiction NOT fiction. Most (if not all) of the other Michigan libraries also label it as Non-Fiction. Just an FYI!

rosetta stone

why do you refuse to purchase rosetta stone in various languages including spanish, french, etc? canton library alleges to be one of the busiest and best in the state of mi with media attention, but you have not purchased this well known basic language software for education. i have submitted requests for this to your library several times. which staffer is not acting on those requests? instead of spending so much to purchase movie dvds which are available to so many already by netflix and amazon and blockbuster, instead of purchasing new fiction books at perfect intervals at great expense, instead of overstaffing the front desk and your desk jobs, why not purchase language software which will really help students in this township?

DVD Movie Titles and holding new Releases

Have the new DVD title ordering habits changed at the library for 2013? I have noticed no new DVD titles have been ordered since mid-December. My family and I have enjoyed watching new DVD title movies from the CPL over the past several years. Just curious and thank you in advance for all you do to help grow our Canton Community.
