One of the Fundraisers- the ongoing book sale.

The Friends of the Canton Library are pleased to announce that we were able to donate $20k to the Library thanks to a very successful Membership Campaign. Our Canton community really stepped up during a year when we were unable to hold our usual fundraisers. 

Our Book Sale Kiosk is open once again in the Library. Stop by and browse our selection of gently used adult and children’s books at bargain prices. 

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, we made the difficult to decision to cancel the Fall Book Sale, which is the biggest fundraiser for the library each year.

As such, we will not be accepting book donations this summer and ask that the community not leave books at the library. We are hoping to announce smaller scale book sales in the coming months.
