Canton Public Library wants you to Electrify Your Winter and Spark Your Year! We've created a whole packet of "Spark Sheets" to help you set goals and achieve great things. We will be rolling these out over the winter with curated experiences to encourage connectivity and growth for all ages. Our kids and family components are called Take Time Together. We will link to the relevant Spark Sheets as well as suggest activities you can do at home to grow in ways you never thought of. Catered to fit your busy lives, suggestions vary for families who have 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours to spend with each other. The choice is yours!
Got a case of the winter blues? Recharge with our Fully Charged Spark Sheet! Explore the many library services available to you beyond books and movies. With your CPL card, you have access to:
Hoopla (streaming music, comics, ebooks, movies, TV shows)
Farms do amazing things! They raise animals, grow food, and even let you visit sometimes. We had lots of fun talking about Farms in Storytime. Be sure to check out these great books we read plus some of the extra suggestions too.
Did you miss our Dinosaur Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions so you can create your own prehistoric storytime at home, complete with songs and stories.
Don't need a full storytime? Borrow a rhyme when you need a short distraction, or check out these materials and spend a few minutes reading together.
It may have been desperately cold outside, but we were cozy and warm in Storytime today as we talked about food. Do you have a favorite food? Enjoy these stories and songs from Storytime as you ponder what your favorite food is.
Thank you to the brave babies that came out for Animal Storytime today. :) We had such fun roaring and quacking together. Here are some stories and songs for you to enjoy in the coziness of your own living room.
When the weather outside is frightful, the Library has you covered. Check out entertaining and educational video from the library without leaving the comfort of your home, with streaming video from Kanopy or Hoopla (or both!). These services offer movies and television for all ages, and its content is always available with your CPL card.
