Is there any way to have the keyboards and computer desk areas cleaned weekly or biweekly? I find that the keyboards and surrounding desk top to be filthy in the adult computer lab. I utilize the computer lab daily and am pleased that CPL offers a quiet and restricted area for patrons, however it would be even more appreciated to not find keyboards with hair, food crumbs, torn pieces of paper and eraser shavings all over them. Thank you for your assistance and concern.
1. Add cushions to the computer chairs. I apply for jobs daily and sit for hours. The wood chairs are very hard and uncomfortable.
2. Add lockers w/combinations, like the fitness area at the Summit. When I am here hours applying for jobs online, I must gather all my belongings and take them to the restroom or outside when answering/making a phone call, as phone call reception is poor to non-existent in the building.
3. Consider adding restrooms inside the main building. Again, when using the computers, it is cumbersome to gather belongings, check out materials and then use the restroom; only to bring all back into the building when done using the restroom.
Love the new hold item label stickies! GENIUS!

Is there somewhere you can view what you've borrowed before? Like a history of what you've borrowed from the library.
do you have any dark secrets books in your library?
I wanted to thank everyone for providing such a wonderful library. I enjoy the selections and the ease of use of the website. One thing I was thinking about, I know the regular mailings we get on Library events cost money and that is why they have scaled back. If it is a cost thing, I really don't need that info in the mail and would love to just have it emailed to me and I'm sure there are many others like me. I'm sure there are still some people in the area that need the info on paper but would it be cost effective to give residence the option of "opting out" of mailed updates in favor of emailed ones?
So i got a book on hold and it says 1 out of 1 hold on first copy, the first copy of the book say in transit + 1 hold. What does this mean?
Actress is listed as 'Amanda Seyfriend'... should be Seyfried.
How can the Governor expect the residents of Michigan to expand their knowledge of the world if the funding is not there for libraries. I love my Canton Library. My mom moved up north, near Gaylord. Her library isn't even the size of the front area of the kids section. We are very lucky in Canton! I use MelCat all the time for books not available in Canton and would be very upset if the funding goes away.
The Canton library and librarians are the best!
To whom it may concern,
I was very offended today to see an extremely underdressed woman with a lot of cleavage on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue on my way past the magazine spinners heading to Secondhand Prose. I feel that the library should be a family friendly place and such vulgar material should be covered or located in a restricted area. I was very grateful that I did not have any children with me to see it as well. Personally, I don't think there is any reason that the library should waste money on such material at all, but if you do feel it necessary to spend our tax money on that garbage, please don't display for all to see. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
It is appalling to hear that the library allows pornographic materials to be viewed in your computers. As taxpayers, we object to our money being used to corrupt the minds of our children. We block pornographic websites at our homes. A public facility, especially a public library, should do the same.
On the back of pretty much ALL Manga are age ratings. I would prefer you use those for a few reasons. One about my younger sister. She likes reading "Tokyo Mew Mew" and "Kamichama Karin" which are both part of some of her favorite series.
Tokyo Mew Mew is rated AGE 7&UP and Kamichama Karin is AGE 10 & UP. Yet, it is in the teen room.
She tells me that she feels inferior and short to the people in the Teen Room and she is embarrassing me every time she says, "Oh, YES!! They have the ENTIRE series!" Or "FINALLY! Book (Insert a random number) is HERE!!!"
And also, she isn't allowed to go into the teen room. She gets in trouble for checking out Manga, because she claims that Librarians stop her and say that she cannot go into that room. I cannot and DO NOT want to carry 10 manga novels and my books out of that room every single week.
So please, put books for kids 10 and under in the TWEEN please.
I just saw on my account that my Library card will expire on my birthday. Why is this and what do i need to do come in and apply for another one?
Just wanted to say Thank you! We are new canton residents and are very pleased with all our library has to offer, from materials to classes, etc. You always seem to have what I need, or if you dont I request it from MEL (so easy!!) and it's there within days.
Thank you for making our library so good and user friendly !!
I cannot figure out how the library enters authors for searches. There needs to be one standard. Two examples. 1. If I search and click on: Coben Harlan, I can see the 2011 book Live Wire and request it. If I click on: Coben Harlan 1962, the book is not listed. Same author, not found in the same search. 2. Connelly Michael, The Fifth Witness. Connelly Michael 1956, the book is not listed. Robert Parker can be searched under at least 3 different listings. One standard would help.
I would like to compliment your branch on your excellent cd collection. Often when using mel.org I notice that the items Im looking for are found at the Canton Public Library. Thanks so much!
Please e-mail the computer class schedule. Thanks
Have we ever looked into extending the weekend hours of the library? It would be great to look into longer evening hours!
I recently lost my library card and just want to have it blocked so whoever finds it can't borrow materials under my name !
