 Bestsellers at Your Library

            On October 10, 1896, the New York Times published its first book review section which would later include the famous NY Times Best Seller list. These days, you know you are kind of a big deal when your name appears on that list. For authors around the world, making The NY Times list is a crowning achievement. At the Canton Free Library, we offer many top selections from the NY Times list in our ongoing endeavor to provide our patrons with current popular materials.

 October Reads

            Welcome October! Our gorgeous North Country autumn is in full swing with riots of color and seasonal goodies. Eighty percent of the United States pumpkin supply is available in October, so it is no surprise that virtually every item on the local shelves is infused with this wonderful fall flavor. A good book is the perfect accompaniment to all of those pumpkin spiced lattes and cider donuts. We’re happy to help you find a new favorite title at the Canton Free Library!

 Little Women

            Over twenty years ago, my mother gave me her copy of Little Women, and I fell in love with the novel that has inspired generations of children. September 30th marks the anniversary of the first volume’s initial 1868 publication by Louisa May Alcott. The National Education Association has ranked Little Women as one of the “Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children.” This week we invite you to revisit this beloved novel, introduce it to your children, and pick up one of its film adaptations at the Canton Free Library.

            Little Women is the story of four sisters facing poverty while their father serves in the Civil War. The girls learn that their imagination can transform their lives and bring joy to those suffering around them. The second sister, unconventional Jo March, challenges gender norms with her adventures, mishaps, and dreams.
