October 17-23 is National Friends of the Library Week. The Friends of the Canton Public Library is a volunteer group of library supporters who advocate and raise community awareness. They are also the library's biggest donors, with financial support for library offerings such as summer reading, programs for all ages, equipment and special collections and much more.
CPL has been fortunate to have great Friends Boards, such as the one elected in January, 1988. Patricia Bunnell (right) was President, Marta McCabe (center) was Vice President, Shirley Worpell (left) was Secretary and Linda Garrett (not pictured) was Treasurer. Special thanks to Shirley Worpell, historian for the Friends, for the photo.
