30 Days of Wonder
October 2-31, 2014
The North Canton Public Library joins a collective group of libraries in Stark County to explore â€œthe wonder of Wonderâ€ throughout October. The book, Wonder, by author R.J. Palacio is this yearâ€™s selection for the One Book, One Community program in Stark County.
Wonder has bridged generations, appealing to all ages, with its beautiful message encouraging kindness. Children love the book, as do adults and seniors. Wonder uniquely delivers an important message about empathy with humor and a captivating story.
The book is really a great choice because it is centered around kindness and October is anti-bullying month as well as Character Counts! month. Each day in October, patrons will be invited to participate in something related to the story, whether it be a childrenâ€™s program, a passive program, a social media campaign or a book chat. Some of these will be joint programs with other libraries, but most are unique to the North Canton Public Library. There will be something for community members of all ages.
Weâ€™re excited to do our part to help advocate for kindness in Stark County!
Highlighted events to be held at the North Canton Public Library include:
October 13 - Wonder Book Discussion for all ages at 6 p.m.
October 18 - Mr. Puppetâ€™s no bully themed ventriloquist/puppet show for children at 11 a.m.
October 23 - PACERâ€™s Unity Day when the NCPL staff will â€œGo Orangeâ€ against bullying and encourage the North Canton community to join them in wearing orange.
