Library doors open
By Jim Rink
ANP Staff Writer

Approximately 1,500 people attended an open house for the new Canton Public Library Nov. 13.

Members of the library staff celebrated the official opening of the $4.5-million facility on 1200 South Canton Center Road Monday, Nov. 14, when they welcomed their first customers.

"It was wonderful," said Library Director Jean Sebeysten-Tabor, "A really great turnout. It was surprising, it went very well. We received lots of positive comments and the people were very excited."

Tabor said it might be Dec. 1 before things are really all in place, but the building is basically finished and all 85,000 library books are back on refurbished shelves, waiting to be checked out.

Featured in the 31,000 square-foot facility is a 135-gallon aquarium, which will be stocked with salt water fish.
