Canton Public Library has been a destination for fright and fun on Halloween for nearly as long as we've been around.

For instance, as this Observer clipping attests, CPL hosted singer/storyteller Pamela Vander Ploeg in 1986 for a Halloween dose of spooky stories and "ghosts, goblins, games, goodies."

We've recently snapped a lot more [digital] pictures of staff and patrons in their costumes:

As illustrated in this CPL music video from 2002, reading rules. And that's as true today as it was in 1980 when the library opened.

In today's media, the death of reading is greatly exaggerated. How people read and what people read has changed, to be sure. And although there are many other things you can do at the library, books and reading is still the number one reason people visit. Fiction titles are the top circulation item at CPL.

What will reading be like in the future? Will the ink on paper format still exist? What impact will electronic books have on how and what we read? Clive Thompson's piece in Wired, The Future of Reading offers one opinion. Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, is hard at work building a better book.

So, yes, reading rocks. And it rules. And it really does unlock the door to a world of imagination, fun and opportunity for kids of all ages.
