National Library Week

This week is National Library Week, an annual celebration of the contributions of libraries and library workers to the fabric of community life. This year's theme is "Worlds Connect @ Your Library," and if you've been to CPL lately, you know that this is true! Use of the library has increased 13% compared to 2008, which saw increases of 11% over 2007. While the recession is hitting the library, too, we remain committed to excellent service, outstanding collections of books, music, movies, and games, nearly 150 computers, free wi-fi, wireless printing, and free programming for all ages from storytimes to craft programs to musical events to computer classes.

We are proud to offer the Canton community all of these services, and want to hear from you to help us plan for our future--what should we keep doing? What should we stop doing? What should we start doing? Come on in and visit us this week, get a Canton Public Library card, and discover your public library!
