Adult’s Program

Our Adult program will feature a form that you can pick up at the library’s front desk. Each form has 15 categories that range from different genres of books, to a book with an animal protagonist or a book with an animal on the cover, or to a book by a local author. Fill in 4 categories on each form with a book you have just read. You can complete as many forms as you like. Ask the librarians if you need help finding books in any unfamiliar category.

While supplies last, each adult who picks up their first form will receive a gift of reading-themed mini-magnets made by the library’s teen advisory group!

For every form an adult reader turns in by Tuesday, August 17, 2021, there is a chance to win a special drawing, to be held August 18.

Special thanks go to the Friends of Canton Public Library who sponsored this year’s summer reading. Thanks also to the TAG volunteers for helping to put together the children’s and teen’ craft bags and creating the magnets for the adult program.
