Canton Public Library has partnered with CantonWiki; The 500 listings previously on Everything Canton are now available in a friendly, easy-to-use wiki format.
CantonWiki is a not-for-profit City Wiki for the Plymouth-Canton area. Pages range from Restaurant listings to a page dedicated to Tacky Christmas light displays in our neighborhoods. It is a great community resource, made better by an active Canton community.
