Broadband Internet Survey

The Accelerate Broadband Committee within the Kaskaskia College Region on behalf of the Clinton County Board has prepared a survey to determine the need for expanded broadband service. The link to the survey is https://illinoisaces.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eqSTPXzoGJMSZkG

If you know of someone who does not have internet access at home, please let them know the library has paper copies of the survey they can complete. The library also has computers for public use if they would like to complete the survey online.

Every household that completes the survey will be entered into a prize drawing to be held in late July.

Parking Lot and Driveway Construction Project

UPDATE: Start date of Thursday, May 19th.

The Germantown Public Library is replacing the Driveway and Parking lot.  The back door will need to be used while this project is being completed.  The parking lot will be available at the beginning of the project, but needs to be accessed via the alley behind Germantown IGA.  If you park in the street you will need to walk through the grass between the Library and the IGA in order to enter through the back door.  At this time we do not have an exact start date, but we will update information throughout the project on our Facebook page and website www.gtownlibrary.org   Please excuse our mess while we make these improvements.

Temporary Closure

The library is currently closed to have the carpet replaced. This included removing all of the items from the shelves so the shelves could be moved. Once the carpet is installed and the books are back on the shelves we will re-open. If you have questions feel free to email us at gma@gtownlibrary.org or call 618-523-4820.
