@ Your Library

by Beverly Ewart



New books are eagerly awaiting your arrival!  You will be able to start visiting them in person when we open at Noon on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.


However, we will need you to be patient with usWe will be closed Monday, May 3, 2021 to prepare for the big day, and, though we are re-opening for in-person browsing, we must comply with State law. Browsing will need to be done briskly, 6 feet apart, and enmasked.  (Enmasked is not really a word - not even according to the Scrabble Dictionary - but it should be.  Enmasked means wearing a mask that fully covers nose and mouth.)  


Our curbside services will continue, and we remain open noon-5pm daily.  (Yes.)  Some of the daily means curbside-only…  But we are still figuring that out.




Every Wednesday at 10:30 there’s a new virtual Preschool Storytime posted on the library’s Facebook page. It’s a recorded video, so you can watch it at your convenience,and past videos are archived on the Library’s website at https://www.cantonfreelibrary.org/children/storytime/preschool

Contact Ms. Val at vwhite@ncls.org or 315-386-3712 ext 4 with any questions.
