Reciprocal Borrowing 2012 - Board Presentation

At the Board of Trustees meeting on February 21, 2013, Circulation Services Department Head Nancy Szczepanski provided an overview of reciprocal borrowing. Nancy reviewed 2012 checkouts from our library by residents of other communities, and vice-versa, particularly since the board approval of changes to our Circulation Policy last year. The updated policy affirmed our commitment to sharing with and supporting our neighbors while preserving primary access to Canton taxpayers.

Nancy's presentation, attached here as a .pdf, gave the Board good background on checkouts of our materials by patrons of other libraries, and I hope that you find it useful and interesting, also.

Best,

Eye Glasses Needed

According to the World Health Organization, 284 million people worldwide suffer from poor vision simply because they do not have access to or cannot afford care. In some countries, a pair of eyewear costs more than a month's salary.
Now through April 8, students from the PCEP chapter of the National Honor Society are collecting eyewear for OneSight, a charitable organization dedicated to providing free eye care to those in need. You can drop your donation of prescription glasses in the collection box near the Reception Desk.

Fourth Annual Library Diaper Drive Aims for the 100,000 Mark

CANTON, MI— The Canton Public Library is counting on the generous people of Metro Detroit to come through again for the fourth Stuff the Truck Diaper Drive, November 14 and 15. Over the last three years, the library has collected more than 75,000 diapers to benefit the Canton-based Detroit Area Diaper Bank, in the biggest diaper drive in Michigan. This year, they hope to top the 100,000 mark.

The library will accept diapers of any size or brand, newborn through adult, including pull-ups, swim diapers and open packages, from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM on November 14 and 15. The Detroit Area Diaper Bank, a nonprofit charitable organization, will dispense them to SE Michigan partner agencies serving people in crisis.

Pennies from Heaven

Do you have a pile of spare pennies? Consider donating them to the Pennies from Heaven program to support the Canton Goodfellows "No Canton Child Without a Christmas." Bring your pennies — or any spare change — to the lobby of the Canton Summit from 10:00 AM to Noon on Saturday, October 27 and meet other Goodfellows and Canton Observer staff. Enjoy a glass of cider and a doughnut. Your change can make a change for the Canton Goodfellows this year. This project honors Nancy Spencer, a long-time volunteer with the Canton Goodfellows and The Friends of the Canton Public Library, who passed away last week.
