Important Virus Information

As of March 13, the library is cancelling programs such as Monthly Story Time and Lego Club. We are disinfecting surfaces at the library daily and will clean and disinfect our childrens’ toys.

We will stay open at least through Monday March 16 and the board will decide what to do after that date, in light of school closures and recommendations from the local, state and federal government. Health and safety are our highest priorities. If you are sick, please do not come to the library. You can always call us at 523-4820 or email us at gma@gtownlibrary.org to request items or renewals of items you already have. This could be a great time to try eBooks through our Cloud Library. Download the app via yourcloudlibrary.com. Contact us with any questions, stay safe and wash your hands!
