From modest beginnings in a single room of the North Canton Community Building in 1928 with a collection of 1,000 books, to our current building complete with an art gallery and a collection of 155,163 items in our physical collection, the North Canton Public Library has served the community for 91 years.
Maintaining the integrity of this community building and preserving the library for future generations is critically important to us.
The library has been through many renovation projects, and the latest is currently underway.
The current work involves three distinct projects:
1. HVAC Replacement
2. Building Façade Repair
3. Roof Replacement
The library is phasing the project, allowing the building to remain open during construction. We hope to maintain access to materials and programming as safety and renovation logistics allow, however noise disruptions are possible. In the event the library must close for a day or two, notices will be posted on the library website, Instagram and Facebook pages.
The project is expected to wrap up in November, and the result will be a dry and comfortable library for current community members and future generations to enjoy.
UPDATE: August 8, 2019
