COMMUNITY READING GOAL
Help us reach our community goal of 650,000 minutes read!

When we reach our goal, the Friends of the Library, the Rotary Club of North Canton and Daystar Autosphere will donate a combined total of $1750 each to the North Canton Cares Pantry and the Stark County Pet Food Pantry!

That’s a total of $3500 to help our community! We’re counting on your help! We need to reach our community goal of 650,000 minutes of reading to make this happen!

And as you read and complete activities, you will still earn digital tickets so you can enter to win big prizes when our summer reading program ends on July 31. It’s a win-win!
