For the 2014 holiday season, the North Canton Public Library is hosting:
A â€œGiving Treeâ€ in which names of local nursing home residents, children, and adults are placed on a gift card, along with the age and special need, if any. The tags hang on the tree and library patrons can select a card, purchase a gift and return it wrapped with the tag attached. The gifts are then delivered to the recipients in the various nursing homes, schools and agencies.
A â€œMitten Treeâ€ where items such as mittens, gloves, hats, undergarments, and socks for children from infancy to high school age serve as decorations until they are removed and given to â€œA Community Christmasâ€ for distribution to those with a need.
A â€œCoats for Christmasâ€ collection box where new and gently used coats can be donated. â€œA Community Christmasâ€ will distribute the coats to Goodwill, Calvary Mission, Refuge of Hope, Wesley United Methodist Church in Massillon, Avondale Kindergarten, Domestic Violence Project and others in need.
A Pawsitive Ohio â€œHoliday Paws Pantryâ€ collection bin where unopened pet food, pet treats and pet toys will be collected for families struggling to feed their companion animals during the holiday months.
A Stark County Hunger Task Force collection bin where non-perishable food items will be collected.
Check out our new document station that allows you to fax and scan from the library! It's available on the main floor near the front desk.

About: A major exhibition of monumental drawings by the itinerant folk artist, Ferdinand A. Brader, will open at the Canton Museum of Art, McKinley Presidential Library and Museum and the Little Art Gallery this December. The Little Art Gallery will feature a collection of Braderâ€™s colored pencil drawings.

The Heart Gallery, a project of the Stark County Department of Job and Family Services, will be on display in the library December 8 through January 11. The project depicts children in beautiful art, created by local artists, with hope that the artwork will inspire families to envision themselves as potential adoptive families, forever changing the life of a child.
