At the Canton Free Library, we’re hoping to lift your spirits with our new Snowbound Winter Reading Club. Designed by CFL’s director Emily Owen and Technical Processing Specialist Beverly Ewart, this program lets you win prizes for doing what you love—reading!
To enter, just pick up a Snowbound Winter Reading Club packet at the library. You’ll get tear-off slips for each book you read. Whenever you read a book between January 5th and March 15th, fill out a slip and drop it in the jar at the Front Desk.
Women’s History Month
It’s been over one hundred years since suffragists marched down Pennsylvania Ave in Washington D.C. on March 3, 1903 for the right to vote. Decades later, we’re still discovering hidden histories of women who changed or world. At the Canton Free Library, we’re featuring stories about a variety of historical women, including those who were vocal about their struggles and those altered society in quieter ways. Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month with historical fiction and nonfiction.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss
All of these years I’ve been saying it wrong. According to the Random House website on Seuss, "If you want to pronounce the name the way his [Dr.Seuss] family did, say ‘Zoice’, not ‘Soose.’ Seuss is a Bavarian name, and was his mother’s maiden name." Who knew?
This week we celebrate the birth of the famous Dr. Seuss, born as Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904. I remember his rhyming tale Hop on Pop being the first book I ever read. His books continue to be first reads for many of our children and grandchildren. His quirky illustrations and nonsensical rhymes make his 46 published works timeless.
At the Canton Free Library, we have an entire bin filled with Seuss books. We invite you to check out your favorites, and to pick up his stories that have been made into popular films, such as The Lorax and Horton Hears a Who.
