Classical music speaks both to the mind and to the heart, giving us something to think about as well as to experience.
Celebrate opening night at one of the many concerts offered throughout the month of September.
Registration begins August 27th at 9:00 AM. Please indicate any food allergies in the notes field when registering. CPL librarians worked hard to tailor this program for a specific age group, so Snack Tales is for kids in grades K-4 only, with a caregiver.
If you, like so many other grandparents are hosting your grandchildren this summer Canton Public Library offers a wide variety of programs for babies through teens this summer.
