In light of the closing of St. Lawrence County schools due to concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, Canton Free Library and the branch libraries in Rensselaer Falls and Morley will close to the public through April 20. The bookdrop in Canton will be open so that books can be returned, but borrowers will not be charged late fees if they choose to keep items until the libraries reopen. 

Canton Free Library cardholders are encouraged to explore the library's online resources, including downloadable e-books, audiobooks and magazines from Overdrive, craft tutorials from Creativebug, language-learning from Mango Languages and local history resources from NYS Historic Newspapers. Those who don't have a library yet can sign up for one online by choosing "My Account" at www.ncls.org.

The staff and board of Canton Free Library wish all of our patrons safety and good health during this outbreak, and we thank you for your patience and support.
