Movies

Check out our movie and book display on the first floor for some great books that have been made into movies, and movies that have been made from books.  

Remember: all of the books and movies in ALL of our displays can be checked out and borrowed. 
Judge for yourself if the book is really better than the movie!

Advisory

Students – are you passionate about the library? 
Do you have specific interests or needs you’d like us to be aware of?  Do you think we can do things better?  We’d LOVE to hear from you!!!

The Library Department, Tutoring Department and Help Desk all jointly operate a Library Learning Commons Student Advisory Board, and we’d like YOU to consider being a member!  The group meets only twice per semester, and we gather together to discuss the issues and concerns most relevant to you, the students.  This is an exciting opportunity for your voices to be heard. 

If you’d like to be a permanent member of the Library Learning Commons Student Advisory Board, please email library@canton.edu and let us know!  If you’d like to just “check it out” and see what this kind of meeting is all about, please drop in at noon on April 19, 2016 in the Think Tank (the 1st floor instruction classroom behind the stairs) in the Library.  We would love to see you!
