“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not,”
The words of the Lorax resonate with us as we prepare for Earth Day this year. His insight is timeless for its simplicity and truth. We know that many of our Canton community do care deeply, on Earth Day and year round. We encourage you to pick up “green reads” at the Canton Free Library as part of your Earth Day celebration and everyday commitment to making our planet a better place. Our collection has books on environmental responsibility geared toward all ages.
National Library Week
Come celebrate National Library Week with us at the Canton Free Library! This year National Library Week falls on April 12-18th, and the American Library Association theme is “Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library.”
Come discover the stories living in your neighborhood! We’ve invited a handful of the community’s most interesting people to tell their stories at the Canton Free Library on Saturday, April 18th from 10am-2pm. The following are brief bios of the “Living Books” available for in-house checkout.
Our Special Guest is Assemblywoman Addie Russell! Addie represents the 116th Assembly District, also known as the “River District,” extending from Massena to Fort Drum. As a member of the Assembly, Addie is the Chair of the Task Force on Food, Farm and Nutrition Policy and the Chair of the Subcommittee on Women Veterans. She is a current member and past President of the American Association of University Women, Jefferson County Branch, and the University at Albany Alumni Association. Prior to serving on the Assembly, Addie was a member of the Board of Directors of the Volunteer Transportation Center, Community Action Planning Council, and Jefferson County’s Community Services Board MR/DD Committee. She is a past member of Head Start Policy Council and Jefferson County Bar Association. Addie, a long-time friend of North Country libraries, journeys from Theresa to join us as a book in our Living Library.
