COVID-19 Digital Time Capsule


This digital repository hosted by the Canton Public Library is for the collection and preservation of the written experience and photo(s)/video/audio contributed by the Canton community as we respond to the impact on our daily lives of the global pandemic brought on by the highly contagious virus COVID-19.  Efforts were made to solicit input across varying age groups utilizing communication through the Canton Public Library, the Canton Public School system, the COA, town departments, The Canton Citizen newspaper and other avenues of outreach.  The Canton Public Library reserves the right to edit for clarity and brevity before digital publication.

Canton Remembers Our Veterans


On October 21st, 2017 Veterans and their loved ones gathered at The Canton Public Library to have their keepsake photographs and items scanned for presentation here and archiving at Digital Commonwealth.  Click Here to see the article in the Canton Citizen that George Comeau of the Canton Historical Society wrote at the time of the event. 

This is by no means a definitive list of all of the members of our community who have served.  We intend to work with the Canton Historical Society and the Veterans Services Department and we will present many more of the resources we have in the library in the near future.

If you have photos or memorabilia which you would like us to include, please fill out and sign a Service Member Information Form with the name of the veteran to be honored and an Item Information Form for each image you send.  Please include as much description as you can on each form.

Please send your files (and any questions) to Matt Amory, Librarian for Information and Technology.
