It’s an Epic Summer at the North Canton Public Library, complete with summer reading clubs for all ages! Registration begins May 27.

Make plans to attend our Epic Summer Kick-off Party Saturday, May 28!

Registration for the reading record begins May 27.  Receive a summer reading themed backpack and reading record to begin your summer reading.  After each row in the reading record is completed, totaling one hour of reading, children can choose a prize from the treasure chest.  Receive an NCPL frisbee when the whole reading record is completed.  Enter for a chance to win a grand prize by completing the entire reading record by July 23.  All other prizes are available while supplies last.


The first 300 children to register will receive a free ticket to the Akron Zoo!

The first 100 to complete their Reading Record will receive an Epic yard sign!

The children’s department also offers fantastic programming all summer long!

For children, not only is reading over the summer fun, but it’s critical to their literacy achievement. Research shows that as much as three months of reading progress that a child gained during the previous school year can be lost over the summer if they do not continue reading. This loss is cumulative year after year. The North Canton Public Library offers fantastic resources and our popular summer reading programs to help encourage children to remain engaged in reading throughout the summer months.

Win gift cards just for reading and attending library programs! For every program you attend and book you read, you’ll be entered to win your choice of our Epic selection of gift cards!

Summer reading clubs aren’t just for kids! Register for our adult summer reading club to stay informed about library events and win Epic prizes just for reading books and attending programs!


The first 150 to register for the club will receive an NCPL tote bag and chocolate from Earth Fare North Canton.

Sign-ups will take place throughout the summer, but special incentives including entry to win an Earth Fare prize package will be provided for those who sign-up at the library May 27 and 28
