Memorial Day Supply Drive a Huge Success

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we were able to provide over 20 boxes of supplies and $330 in gift cards and donations for homeless veterans, collected through our Memorial Day drive. The Veterans Hospital of Ann Arbor volunteer specialist Sandy Jacobs packed her van with your donations to distribute to homeless and needy veterans in the area. Thank you for your contributions.

Something's Missing in the Children's DVD Collection

Beginning today, the J DVD collection is getting an update. Over the next month each J DVD will get a new three-letter label. These labels (that look just like the ones on the Adult DVDs) will make it easier to find the titles you're looking for.

J DVDs will not be available for check-out while they are being re-labeled. The good news is that each movie should be unavailable for less than one day. If you need help finding what you're looking for, please ask one of the librarians at the Children's Reference Desk.

Where are the Playaways?

We are in the process of withdrawing our Playaway audiobook collection. If you are looking for a good audiobook, many titles are available in other audio formats. Click on a link to browse our newestNeed help finding what you're looking for? Our librarians are ready to assist you.

Poetry for the Whole Family

I recently completed the Canton Public Library Adult Summer Reading Program and I can't stop thinking about the poetry book I read for the Minimalism Category of the Master Level; The Poets Corner: The One and Only Poetry Book for the Whole Family. The poems were selected by John Lithgow who grew up listening to his grandmother recite poetry. It's a wonderful introduction to poetry and presents an inside look into the poets lives with mini-biographies alongside their work. Be sure to listen to the accompanying MP3 with performers such as Morgan Freeman, Kathy Bates, Glenn Close and many more.
