  Last year’s #LibraryMadness event was one of 2019’s highlights for me. Much like college basketball’s March Madness, the wonderful patrons of the North Canton Public Library helped pick 64 books to enter a tournament.

It’s the last week of August, and things are pretty quiet here at the library. Well, quiet in that we don’t have a lot of programs and activities going on. It’s extremely not quiet in the auditory sense. Our various construction projects are in full swing, and as I type this, there’s some horrible drill […]

The library has terrific programming all through our epic summer, but July 11 through 13 will be extra epic! Throughout these three days, we will offer something for all ages and interests.
