Community partnerships we value:
We are an active partner in Character Counts! North Canton.
We are active members of the North Canton Chamber of Commerce, with our community relations manager serving on the board of directors.
We are active with North Canton Rotary, where our director serves on the executive committee.
The North Canton Public Library works closely with the North Canton City Schools, providing support for programs promoting the arts and literacy.
We are actively involved with city administration in planning and supporting city-wide events. Our staff members serve on a number of city organized committees and are often asked to provide feedback about city initiatives.
Every other Saturday, Cats Cradle of Stark County brings adoptable cats and kittens to the library. Several cats have been adopted through this joint effort.
The library has been an instrumental member of the North Canton community Green Business Roundtable, organized by our local chamber of commerce. With the inspiration of this group, the library has formed a staff “green team,” and are implementing programs and policies to reflect our commitment to sustainability.
Library management staff are encouraged to serve on outside committees and to be active with local volunteer organizations. Collectively, we are active with the Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, Pawsitive Ohio, and more.
Each year, the library invites a number of local non profit organizations to share their information at the library through multiple channels including tables set up in the library.
We employ a full time manager of outreach services (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a full time community relations manager (email@example.com). Don’t hesitate to contact them with additional community partnership opportunities.
