Prime Time Capsule Event

Over 30 years ago, during the construction of the Canton Public Library building, library officials buried a time capsule under the front entryway. That time capsule has remained hidden, untouched since 1988, until this past July, when it was unearthed during a renovation project. While the time capsule was removed from the ground, its contents have remained a mystery.

Until now.

Join us on Wednesday, October 16, 6:30-8:00 PM for our Prime Time Capsule Event, when we crack open the time capsule and reveal the contents.

We'll have fun '80s snacks, an '80s-themed photo booth, historical library artifacts, and '80s music to celebrate. You can also contribute to a new time capsule, and watch the debut of a special library video. Grab your RayBans, put on your parachute pants, and join us for an all-ages celebration of 30 years of Canton history.

  • Remind your grown-ups to silence their phones.
  • Be respectful to other audience members by being mostly quiet, and by sitting mostly still.
  • Show your appreciation by clapping after each story. Laughter is also encouraged.
