The annual Periodicals Drive is an opportunity for businesses, families and individuals to sponsor one of the library’s magazines or newspapers that may be related to their line of work or just a personal favorite. Sponsors’ names appear on every issue of “their” magazines, and the contribution is tax deductible. Sponsorships allow us to offer one of the biggest and best magazine collections in the North Country. Call for more information or donate online using credit card or Paypal-- just include the title of your chosen magazine in the note field.  

ADOPT-A-BOOK (or Music CD or DVD!)

CFL’s Adopt-A-Book (or DVD or music CD) program invites patrons to purchase an item for the library’s collection at the library’s discounted price (about 40% for books.) The purchaser then becomes the first person to read, listen to or view the new item before it's put out for others to enjoy. This program is a way to help the library shorten the waiting lists for those best sellers that everyone wants to read. All donations are tax deductible. Ask at the Front Desk to see the list of soon-to-be-published books that we will be buying throughout February and March and an Adopt-A-Book form, or call Carole Berard at 386-3712 with item requests.


Please consider the Canton Free Library when you are making estate plans. Over time, the financial health of our library will be assured if our friends and patrons, whom we have served for over 100 years, remember the Canton Free Library when they are making decisions about gifts and bequests. Those who have preceded us valued libraries and have begun a legacy of support. It is our hope that, because you, too, value libraries, you will assist us in continuing this tradition.
