    October 21, 2017, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Community Room

    Please help us create a digital archive to remember and honor Canton's service families past and present. Members who served in any branch of the armed services, who now or formerly lived in Canton or residents with close relatives whose service they wish to memorialize in this way are all welcome to participate. The archive will be made accessible on the Library’s website ultimately become part of the Digital Commonwealth. All you need to do is bring up to four photographs that are special to you. We will scan them and record information about the photograph. You are also invited to bring memorabilia that we will digitally photograph. Consider composing a short descriptive summary to accompany each photograph or item, including why it has special meaning to you. (Please omit the names of any non-relatives that appear in the photo.) All scanning will be done in the Library's Community Room on the lower level. No appointment is necessary.

  3. Author Talk: "Chronicle's" Ted Reinstein

    October 23, 2017, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Community Room

    Ted Reinstein, a reporter for “Chronicle” and author, talks about his newest book, New England General Stores. The general store was a place where kids came in to by penny candy, and adults came in to buy everything from swaths of fabric, to fresh vegetables, to four-penny nails. It was deeply woven into America’s cultural identity and the fact is, the general store is still very much here, and still very much the heart of some communities. Free and open to the public.
