Library Talk and Happenings
This summer has been very busy at the Canton library. With Summer Reading behind us, we can now focus on fall programs. Banned Book Week is a pretty big deal here at the Canton branch, celebrated through the week of September 25th and October 1st. The goal of Banned Books Week was to end book banning in schools and libraries across the country and calls on book lovers to speak out against censorship. To do our part, the Canton branch put together a display of books that were previously banned with cards explaining why the book was challenged.

With shoulders bent and minds intent on tutoring, ex-teachers chatted with each other getting prepared for an upcoming tutoring program. Their roles are creating and implementing innovative ways to bring literacy to everyone who needs it. The upcoming program based around tutoring will not require an appointment and will be on a first come first serve basis. Days and times will vary so be on the lookout for updates to Canton’s Google Calendar located on our Branch Page of our website The Manhood Project 805, is a community outreach program that focuses on change within men through local communities. Men of all ages will be empowered through a focus meeting while gaining knowledge and increasing skills to be successful men and fathers. We continue to provide as much information as possible to assist the needs of our community.
