We’ve noticed changes in how patrons use the library, and we are aligning our adult and teen collections and seating to accommodate these shifts. No changes are currently planned for the Children's Library.
Book kits have moved to a single row at the end of adult fiction. We’ve kept these on the middle, easy to reach shelves so everyone can access these popular items. There are also some new selections if you have not looked at this collection recently.

Westerns are now along the adult fiction wall, near where they were before, but with better lighting from the newly uncluttered window.
We have opened up space along the east wall of the library, between the Teen Space and the two-person study rooms, for more quiet seating and tightened the nearby Adult Nonfiction collection for a more streamlined browsing experience.
DVDs have moved to two new free-standing rows, where CDs are now. This will allow them to be browsed more easily from A-Z. We will also add a new DVD section, to make our newer DVDs easier to find.
CDs have been streamlined to be more relevant to patrons still enjoying this collection and moved just around the corner from their previous location.
Video games have moved from their current location to be closer to other media materials.
Magazines have also been streamlined and now bookend the space in front of The Lab. The tall free-standing row of magazines has been removed, creating easier access and visibility for Secondhand Prose, the used bookstore run by the Friends of the Canton Public Library. Didn’t know we had a bookstore? Come check it out!
Finally, the low bookshelf that formerly houses the DVDs with titles alphabetized from "M" to "P" will be repurposed to expand our Large Print collection, allowing us to keep these items in easy reach for you.
