@ Your Library

Happy National Fun at Work Day!
The work environment at CFL is a good one! We are a team of co-workers who work well together and like each other’s company. We have great patrons who feel just as much a part of the crew as any of us, and volunteers who fit right in to help make CFL a welcoming place for all. It IS fun to work here!

Anime Club. Join us on Friday evenings from 5-7 to experience anime both old school and contemporary.
Chess Club: meets on Mondays from 5-7. All skill levels welcome.

Writer’s Group: The Writers Group has existed for more than two decades and is a place where writers of all types can share their work and help each other. Bring the writer in you and join us for a fun time, mutual support and constructive feedback. The group meets upstairs in the Mezzanine on the SECOND and LAST Monday of each month at 6pm.
Creativebug Crafters: Join us at the Canton Free Library as we use Creativebug to learn new crafting skills. Every last Tuesday month we'll take a turn testing a new Creativebug class! Our first session is Tuesday, January 29, 2020 at 6pm. January's class is a super easy one and a great way to upcycle! All you'll need to bring is a beaded object that you can use for parts; it can be a piece of old jewelry, a beaded placemat, trivets or belts, anything that has beaded parts that you're ready to transform. Don't have anything? Show up anyway and we'll share what we have with you!
