Today at CPL — October 6, 2010

As we'll learn more about later, our current building opened November 13, 1988. At the time, it was 31,500 square feet, which allowed the library to house about 149,000 items.

An expansion took place over 2000 and 2001 that gave us an additional 22,000 square feet, for a current total of 53,500. This additional area allowed us to have over 300,000 items and to serve our growing population better with more rooms, seating, and overall space.

Many photographs from the re-opening of the expanded Children's Library can be found in the Canton History project. You may also enjoy these pages from our old website talking about the expansion, courtesy of the Wayback Machine.

To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we also have 30 Entertaining Ways to go Green.
