The North Canton Public Library will wrap up the summer offering programs and events for all ages and varied interests.
Special notice: At their July 18, 2012 meeting, the library board of directors approved a request from Sandra Lang, library director, to open the library Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Lang made the request in an effort to support the community’s Main Street Festival, also citing the library’s desire to meet the needs of the community and festival attendees that weekend. The library is typically closed Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
In addition to the library being open both Saturday and Sunday of the Main Street Festival, the Friends of the Library will host their annual book sale August 16-19, and library staff will participate in the Main Street Festival with a booth along “community row.”
