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.

The new carpet has been installed and we are back in business. Thank you to the following people and businesses who provided time, effort, supplies and use of property to help us complete our renovation project. The project would not have been completed so quickly without you.
We will be open on Saturday, March 26th from 9am-11am and back to business on Monday, March 28th. If you need any boxes we have plenty to share. Thank you for your patience while we made these improvements.

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 email@example.com or call 618-523-4820.
