The season undoubtedly looks different this year, but the Canton Public Library is here to ensure that your family stays safe at home for the holidays! CPL Librarians have compiled some of the best library resources for you to enjoy while cozied up with your loved ones.
A lovely way to enjoy the holiday season no matter what holiday you celebrate is music. If you close your eyes, you can just hear the opening notes from a long familiar tune and it can take you back to your childhood or to yesterday. Music is so powerful that it can make us laugh, cry, and relive memories long forgotten. We hope these help you enjoy a safe and memorable holiday season.

"Pulitzer Prize-winner and biographer of Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and John D. Rockefeller, Ron Chernow returns with a sweeping and dramatic portrait of one of our most complicated generals and presidents, Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant's life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman, fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War; or as a credulous and hapless president whose tenure came to symbolize the worst excesses of the Gilded Age. These stereotypes don't come close to capturing adequately his spirit and the sheer magnitude of his monumental accomplishments. A biographer at the height of his powers, Chernow has produced a portrait of Grant that is a masterpiece, the first to provide a complete understanding of the general and president whose fortunes rose and fell with dizzying speed and frequency"--.
