The award-winning "Pure Michigan" tourism campaign has received another accolade, this one from Forbes, naming it among the 10 all-time best travel campaigns.

We're looking for some special people to become part of the library catalog. Are you a religious leader in the Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jewish faiths? Are you a vegetarian, a policeman, an atheist, a gay/lesbian person, a U.S. military veteran, a rock recording artist, a published author or any other interesting or unusual person? If so, we want you.
The Canton Public Library is starting a Living Books program where patrons can check out "living books" (that would be YOU) for 30 minutes of face-to-face, one-on-one conversation. These interviews are intended to answer questions for the curious, satisfy special interests and beliefs and learn from others' experiences. With dialogue comes understanding - with understanding comes tolerance.
Don't have a pint - donate it to the American Red Cross blood drive when they set up shop at the library on Friday, June 26. You can sign up now at the Reception Desk, or just walk in any time between 11 am-5 pm. There's a critical need for blood this summer, due to the automotive shutdown, so please stop in to donate a drop or two. And be sure to bring a friend.
Give each of these farms a call before you go, because pick-your-own produce options depend on the time of the year, weather and crop yields.
