In 2019, the Friends of the Canton Library meet on the first Monday every other month. The meetings are held in the Canton Branch Meeting Room from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.


The Canton Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library is one of the first branch libraries in Maryland.  Think about how many people have walked through the doors since 1886 to read, share and learn!  The Friends of the Canton Library is dedicated to continuing this proud tradition and assuring that the library continues to be a vital part of our community. Join other people who love the library and help support this valuable community resource.

 

What do the Canton Library Friends do?

  • Raise money to support cultural and educational programs and events for all generations

  • Engage the community and raise awareness of resources, events and programs at the library

  • Volunteer time for special projects and committees

  • Have fun. Enjoy the library events and celebrate the history and future of one of the oldest branch libraries in the country!
