International Happiness Day Celebration

Happiness CelebrationLet's make Canton a happier community with a party to celebrate the start of spring and all the things we've got to be happy about. On March 20, the International Day of Happiness, 6:00-8:00 PM, we'll have music, fun, ice cream and more for all ages. Leading up to this event, participate in our 21 Day Happiness Challenge, which kicks off February 27, and let's try to make Canton a happier place, one day and one person at a time.

Computer Skill Building Opportunities

Every public computer in the library now has self-guided activities for practice with mouse skills, copying/pasting, and more. Need a bit of extra help or have questions on how to find more resources? Computer skill help is available Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at our Web Express computers, or on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at our Teen Space computers.
