Actress is listed as 'Amanda Seyfriend'... should be Seyfried.
How can the Governor expect the residents of Michigan to expand their knowledge of the world if the funding is not there for libraries. I love my Canton Library. My mom moved up north, near Gaylord. Her library isn't even the size of the front area of the kids section. We are very lucky in Canton! I use MelCat all the time for books not available in Canton and would be very upset if the funding goes away.
The Canton library and librarians are the best!
To whom it may concern,
I was very offended today to see an extremely underdressed woman with a lot of cleavage on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue on my way past the magazine spinners heading to Secondhand Prose. I feel that the library should be a family friendly place and such vulgar material should be covered or located in a restricted area. I was very grateful that I did not have any children with me to see it as well. Personally, I don't think there is any reason that the library should waste money on such material at all, but if you do feel it necessary to spend our tax money on that garbage, please don't display for all to see. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
It is appalling to hear that the library allows pornographic materials to be viewed in your computers. As taxpayers, we object to our money being used to corrupt the minds of our children. We block pornographic websites at our homes. A public facility, especially a public library, should do the same.
On the back of pretty much ALL Manga are age ratings. I would prefer you use those for a few reasons. One about my younger sister. She likes reading "Tokyo Mew Mew" and "Kamichama Karin" which are both part of some of her favorite series.
Tokyo Mew Mew is rated AGE 7&UP and Kamichama Karin is AGE 10 & UP. Yet, it is in the teen room.
She tells me that she feels inferior and short to the people in the Teen Room and she is embarrassing me every time she says, "Oh, YES!! They have the ENTIRE series!" Or "FINALLY! Book (Insert a random number) is HERE!!!"
And also, she isn't allowed to go into the teen room. She gets in trouble for checking out Manga, because she claims that Librarians stop her and say that she cannot go into that room. I cannot and DO NOT want to carry 10 manga novels and my books out of that room every single week.
So please, put books for kids 10 and under in the TWEEN please.
I just saw on my account that my Library card will expire on my birthday. Why is this and what do i need to do come in and apply for another one?
Just wanted to say Thank you! We are new canton residents and are very pleased with all our library has to offer, from materials to classes, etc. You always seem to have what I need, or if you dont I request it from MEL (so easy!!) and it's there within days.
Thank you for making our library so good and user friendly !!
I cannot figure out how the library enters authors for searches. There needs to be one standard. Two examples. 1. If I search and click on: Coben Harlan, I can see the 2011 book Live Wire and request it. If I click on: Coben Harlan 1962, the book is not listed. Same author, not found in the same search. 2. Connelly Michael, The Fifth Witness. Connelly Michael 1956, the book is not listed. Robert Parker can be searched under at least 3 different listings. One standard would help.
I would like to compliment your branch on your excellent cd collection. Often when using mel.org I notice that the items Im looking for are found at the Canton Public Library. Thanks so much!
Please e-mail the computer class schedule. Thanks
Have we ever looked into extending the weekend hours of the library? It would be great to look into longer evening hours!
I recently lost my library card and just want to have it blocked so whoever finds it can't borrow materials under my name !
I've lost my library card key tag. I would like to get another card.
I live in Pinckney, MI and have heard great things about your library. I need to to know if I am able to get a canton card so I may borrow books.
I recently googled Canton Library and came upon your site. I was so impressed by the layout, the depth of information, and the ease of use. I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I realized that this library was not the Canton Baltimore library that I was looking for. Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your good work. Keep it up!
The suggestion is to stack the children's dvd's in an up-and-down way, one on top of another for ease in reading titles. Having noticed the Country Living mags were stacked that way recently, I'm wondering if it could work for the those dvd's as well. Would be much easier to read and browse titles, as long as as many dvd's could be stored on each shelf. Perhaps they would slide and slip more easily, but thought it worth considering. Maybe some kind of sectioning device is available.
this is the dumbest thing ever. i like the canton library more then my own, thats why i come here. its ridiculous that i dont have the same benefits as the cpl orange card holders. this needs to change.
Hi I would love to donate some old VHS movies....would you guys accept them? If not, do you know who or where would?
Can you please re-evaluate your policy regarding smoking in the front of the library? Many times I have to walk through a cloud of smoke to return my books or walk into the library. Can you think about creating
a smoking area at the back entrance to the library? I really would appreciate someone taking the time to think about this. It is not healthy to be walking through second hand smoke.
what are your hours for the labor day weekend?
