If you'd like to have a conversation about what it's like to be a volunteer at the library, come to a Teen Advisory Group meeting. Meetings are the 1st Friday of every month at 4:00pm.

Library Podcast

Attention all teen podcast enthusiasts! We want to start our own podcast, but we can't do it without you. We need dedicated readers, gamers, movie watchers, music lovers, and people passionate about sharing their experiences and recommendations with the whole library community. To find out more about when we'll be working on this project, check out the event calendar.

March Madness Committee

This year, we are going to determine the Best YA Book Ever, according to the Canton community. We will be accepting nominations in January, and will need a committee of teen readers to help build the bracket in February. The official match-ups will take place in March, and the winner will be announced at a party on March 31, 2023. Talk to Rosie or Jared at the library to find out more about this opportunity.

Pollinator Garden

The grant-funded pollinator garden is a brand new space in the backyard of the library dedicated to native plants and natural ecological health. There will plenty of opportunities to help with weeding, planting, and maintaining the garden this Spring! Join the mailing list to receive notifications on when we'll be outside working.
