As part of the 9th annual Canton Acts of Culture Week, our staff created a self-guided art tour in the form of a map. Pick one up at the Main Desk if you're interested. Discover our sculptures, quilts, paper mache works, bronze statues, vintage posters and more. You can also view a video or see most of the art with a 'walk' through via Google.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Below is a collection of graphic novels and illustrated works that paint our thoughts and emotions beyond words, offer art as therapy, and help inform us in new ways.

Citizen science projects help scientists with research about our environment. Labs provide instructional tools for the public and a way for people to submit their data and observations. Projects can be quick, like watching 10-second videos of birds and reporting what you saw in a survey. Other projects involve self-guided training to learn how to identify species or life stages of birds, butterflies or other wildlife. There are also great citizen science project for kids!

Recently The Washington Post added a new phrase to it's online masthead:  "Democracy Dies in Darkness." Indeed, a free and independent press is an essential part of a democratic society. 

What do cozy mystery books and romance books have in common? An affinity for silly titles such as:

Mulch Ado About Murder

Chili Con Corpses

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf

So I Married a Sorcerer

We've created a Battle of the Bad Books. Vote for your favorite "bad" mystery or romance title each week and watch how the bracket is narrowed to the ultimate winner. Check out the display and related books available for check-out at CPL.

The 9th annual Canton Acts of Culture Week is May 11-18 and events and activities are planned throughout the community to celebrate the arts. All of our storytimes during this week will have an art theme, and we're hosting the following events at the library.
