Building a deck, landscaping, or canning? In the near future you can head to the Canton Free Library for the tools you need. Yes, you read that right. In addition to loaning how-to books, we’re building a Tool Library to serve the community. Patrons will be able to check out tools with their library cards instead of shelling out money for items they only need to use once in a while.
Our Tool Library collection is off to a good start, but we’d appreciate donations. We’ve assembled the following wish list of items we’re interested in circulating to our patrons:
Unique shaped cake pans (ie. seasonal novelties such as a tree or heart)
Bestsellers at Your Library
On October 10, 1896, the New York Times published its first book review section which would later include the famous NY Times Best Seller list. These days, you know you are kind of a big deal when your name appears on that list. For authors around the world, making The NY Times list is a crowning achievement. At the Canton Free Library, we offer many top selections from the NY Times list in our ongoing endeavor to provide our patrons with current popular materials.
Welcome October! Our gorgeous North Country autumn is in full swing with riots of color and seasonal goodies. Eighty percent of the United States pumpkin supply is available in October, so it is no surprise that virtually every item on the local shelves is infused with this wonderful fall flavor. A good book is the perfect accompaniment to all of those pumpkin spiced lattes and cider donuts. We’re happy to help you find a new favorite title at the Canton Free Library!
