Each year the library looks forward to supporting community giving programs for the holidays. We average 750 patrons through our doors each day, and we feel that if we can help spread awareness about needs in our community, we want to do that.  


For the 2014 holiday season, the North Canton Public Library will host the following:


“Giving Tree” 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. (begins second week of November)


“Mitten Tree” 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 “A Community Christmas” for distribution to those with a need. (begins second week of November)


“Coats for Christmas” collection box where new and gently used coats can be donated. “A Community Christmas” 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. (through December 9)


A  Pawsitive Ohio â€œHoliday Paws Pantry” 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. (begins second week of November)


Stark County Hunger Task Force collection bin where non-perishable food items will be collected. (November 1-December 30)


Additionally, St. Jude’s Recycled Card Program returns this year. St. Jude’s accepts used all-occasion greeting cards for repurposing to raise money to support programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families. Throughout the month of December, please bring any unwanted greeting cards for our collection basket, and we’ll take care of the rest. At the end of the month, we’ll mail them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. Please note that St. Jude’s is unable to accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards.
