Rubble-Rousing at CFLphoto by Jennifer Henry

We are rubble-rousing at CFL! 

Work on our ramp has officially begun.  Please excuse the mess – it will be worth it!

In the meantime, please use the front doors.  We have an elevator for access, because it’s hard to climb up the side of the building unless you have rappelling gear.  We did lock and secure the side door to the ramp for safety reasons, so rappelling gear wouldn’t be much use right now, anyway. (Plus our alarms might go off, which would just be embarrassing.)


Congratulations to Kristina Cundiff, our Novel Noir First Place winner with her photograph SHHH, Jerry Bartlett with his Second Place photo titled The Piano, and Jenn Whittaker with her Third Place photo titled Bleak Sneakers. Honorable Mention goes to Mae Compoli for her photo titled Trouble. Check out all the Novel Noir entries in our gallery! https://cantonfreelibrary.org/novel-noir-winners-announced/


CFL will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, November 11, 2021 to honor our veterans.
