September 2018

News & Announcements:

*** The Library will be closed on Monday, September 3rd for Labor Day ***

Teen Advisory Group Info Session and Taco Bar
The library is looking for teens and tweens (ages 12-18) who want to contribute to the library and their community by being a part of our Teen Advisory Group. A Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a group who volunteers their time to help shape library services and events designed for teens.  It is a great way to meet new friends and get some community service done while having fun.

We are hosting an informal info session at the library from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturday, Sept. 22 to meet anyone who is interested and eat some tacos.  That’s right, there will be a taco bar, so come hungry and full of great ideas!  Read more about TAG at giblib.org/tag
