Curbside in July


@ Your Library

by Beverly Ewart



Resilience is the new normal.  

We are all learning to flex and change and grow during what is a very challenging time.  Restaurants, small businesses, medical personnel, students, teachers, parents, partners, libraries; the challenge of the pandemic is strengthening us all as we rise to meet it. 

The first time my husband and I ordered takeout during this pandemic, we were nervous about how well it would work. But we were READY TO TRY IT OUT!  It seemed like forever since we’d had any kind of break.



Don’t be nervous about how well curbside service at CFL is working.  It is AWESOME!  If you haven’t tried it yet, you should know that it has been going really well.  And - for us - it’s been good to reconnect with YOU - even with your masks on.


Give us a call - order some books.  We are here.  We’ve got this.

There are no programs in the library building this summer, but we are collaborating with the entire North Country Library System to bring you programming, both virtual and non-screen oriented.  The local Canton offerings are shown below and the system-wide offerings can be found at:
