Connect Your Summer Feedback

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 17, 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.

Lunch and a Book August 2015

Euphoria: a novel by Lily King — English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river tribe of New Guinea. Haunted by his brothers' deaths and frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter with colleagues, the controversial Nell Stone and her mercurial Australian husband Fen, pulls him back from the brink. Nell and Fen have just fled the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo and, in spite of Nell's poor health, are hungry for a new discovery. When Bankson finds them a new tribe nearby--the artistic, female-dominated Tam--he ignites an intellectual and romantic firestorm between the three of them that burns out of anyone's control. Join us Thursday, August 13 at noon.
