 Father’s Day Reads

            This Sunday we celebrate our dads and the fatherly figures in our lives. At the Canton Free Library, we have many books geared towards dads, ranging from inspiring stories to humorous looks at fatherhood. We encourage you to take your dad to the library this week for coffee and new books. The best part is it’s absolutely free!

            New to our collection is The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists: The Coolest Experiments for Science Fairs and Family Fun by Ken Denmead. This how-to manual teaches you how to build your own MacGyver radio, extract your own DNA, grow your own crystals, and many more activities. Bond with dad while making your sci-fi dreams come true!

            Maya Angelou said: "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." On May 28th, the world lost this inspirational poet and activist. In her 86 years, she certainly succeeded in her mission.

            At the Canton Free Library, we invite you to celebrate Maya Angelou’s life by checking out her poetry and memoirs. Angelou’s most famous work, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, tells the story of her early years as she struggled to overcome racial mistreatment, low self-esteem and abuse. Published in 1969, this memoir has been challenged and banned in some schools and libraries in response to its graphic content. However, Angelou’s story is also one of hope.  Her love of literature helped her transform her life. Her life story continues in six following memoirs.
