Print on the go! Printing just got easier. You can now print material directly from your mobile device! Download the free PrinterOn app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, Kindle or Nook and use the app to print. Your mobile device will report your location to the cloud, which will pick up our library on the map. Please note: You may add the black & white and/or the color printer (two separate printers to add for your use).
Reduce your library fines with food! Not only will you be paying off your fines but you will be helping those in need. Fine Free Fridays for Food works like this: each donated food item will have $1 waived from the fine. You may have up to $10 waived annually. Items may be donated on Fridays only. Library materials must be returned before fines can be waived. We cannot waive charges for lost materials, damaged materials, or collection fees from Unique Management. We will not accept damaged food, perishable food, expired food or food in glass jars.

Call (330) 688-3295 ext. 4 if you need to register. Class size is limited. Your willingness to share is the only prerequisite.

Join Belinda Richardson and create colorful Tussie Mussie bouquets as she helps you prepare for fall décor. These silk flowers will be perfect for your front door! Tussie Mussies are small bouquets that contain herbs and flowers. They were often carried by women and men from ancient times through the Middle Ages. Their popularity swelled in prerevolutionary France and again on both sides of the Atlantic during the Victorian era.
Join the Director of the Canton Art Museum, M.J. Albacete, as he presents a program on the Statue of Liberty and the man who engineered her, Gustave Eiffel.
In 1976, the Canton Art Museum housed a four-foot terracotta Statue of Liberty made by sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, designer of the original. So many people came to see the statue, the museum started to assemble a program telling the history of the statue (and since Albacete visited the Statue of Liberty several times, the program became longer and longer).
“Spark a Reaction” is the theme of the 2014 Adult Summer Reading Program which runs from Monday, June 9 through Saturday, August 9. Nine posters will be on display at the front of the library.
