Preschool Storytime


            How does the community use library services on a typical day? Take a look! On Wednesday, January 29th the Canton Free Library took a "snapshot" of the activities at our library. Our "snapshot" is part of SNAPSHOTNY: A Day in the Life of a Library, a statewide event hosted by NYLA (New York Library Association). The purpose of this event is to show the valuable services libraries provide to our communities on a daily basis.

            We gathered photos, videos, and statistics to capture what life was like at our library on January 29th. There were 144 books checked out, 23 reference questions, and 22 computers users of all ages. We had 18 children and 10 adults at our popular Preschool Storytime. You can view pictures and a video of our programs on our Facebook page. All in all, we had a busy but wonderful winter day!

            At the Canton Free Library, we believe it takes a village (and more) to raise a library! This week, the CFL staff would like to recognize the contributions of our volunteers. We are very grateful for our dedicated volunteers who help us with the many varied tasks that are part of the day-to-day operation of a library. Some interact with the community through programs and outreach, while others work behind the scenes to keep the library running smoothly. Each of our volunteers serves an important role in our community, and the CFL staff appreciates everything you do!

            We thank Sue and Chuck Bolesh for years of service in the Outreach program. This couple brings materials to homebound patrons who are unable to physically make it to the CFL. They have been responsible for keeping the library materials accessible to several members in the community.

            For many years, volunteer Bill Swafford devoted hours upon hours to the CFL. Bill processed the media collection while teaching the back office staff a thing or two about hockey. We were fortunate to have Bill volunteer for this technical and sometimes tedious task.
