Today at CPL - October 18, 2010

We continue to celebrate National Friends of the Library week and our 30th anniversary by profiling the Friends of the Canton Public Library.

The Friends of the Library have existed since the idea for a Canton Public Library was conceived. It's fitting that the Friends as an organization would precede the library as well. According to the most reliable records we have available, the Friends first met November 27, 1979.

Since then they've had a few more meetings. Our scrapbooks, starting in 1979, show a long line of meetings, events, gifts, book sales, fundraisers, and other great things sponsored by the Friends.

To further celebrate our 30 years and learn more about our Friends, check out 30 Gifts We've Gotten From Our Friends.
